We are proud to announce the recipient of the 2014-2015 Pueblo of Pojoaque Boys & Girls Club 8th Annual Teacher of the Year Award: Judy Martinez  Ms. Martinez teaches English, Spanish & Math at Pojoaque 6th Grade Academy.

Ms. Martinez was nominated by Kiara Martinez & Briannah Romereau who are both her students this year. They both stated that Ms. Martinez has made a big difference in their lives and those of their fellow students by her effort to make a connection with them.  Briannah states, "She is the greatest teacher I have had in the 7 years I’ve been in school and has made a difference in my life by not only teaching me lots of things but also by being a role model.”  Kiara states, "She appears very serious most of the time, but I’ve learned that it’s because she means business when it comes to teaching.  She believes in me and knows that I am capable of greatness and for that I am grateful.” As a teacher for the past 22 years, all at PVS, she makes learning "rewarding.” 

Along with the honor of being named Teacher of the Year, Ms. Martinez was also awarded a trophy and a check for $500 to be used in her classroom next school year.
