Mrs. Laurie Martinez, Counselor




     Hello, my name is Laurie Martinez. I am very excited to be a part of the Rivera Community for the 2020-2021 school year. This year will be my fifth year with our Rivera Stars. I was born and raised in West Texas. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a specialization in Child Development from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. I am a "Red Raider" at Heart! I received my Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling from Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas. This year will be my 28th year in the field of Education and nineteen years as a counselor. My heart smiles knowing I have made an impact in so many young lives. I will continue to be the role model for each child at Rivera Elementary. I look forward in meeting you. Please, do not hesitate to contact me. My office hours during the school year are Monday through Friday from 7:10 am-4 pm.
