My name is Blake Pi, and I am so excited to be teaching in the Structured Learning Classroom at Chandler Elementary.
I was born in California and moved to the Allen area when I was 4 years old. I attended Allen schools K-12 and am so blessed to be teaching in Allen as well. GO EAGLES! My wife, Tiffany, also works in Allen ISD as a Diagnostician at Rountree Elementary. We have been happily married for 9 years. We currently reside in McKinney, TX. Although we do not have any children yet, we have 2 very spoiled cats (Faith and Patty), 1 dog (Stella), and 1 rabbit (Lilly). Most of our animals are rescues, as Tiffany and I have a huge passion for this. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my animals, traveling, and spending time with family.
I received my bachelors degree in special education from the University of North Texas. This is my 10th year as a Special Education Teacher and my 7th year in Allen ISD.
I really have a passion for teaching students with special needs and am always learning new ways for them to reach their full potential. I am so excited to start the year and working with you and your child. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

Hello, my name is Daniela Martinez. This will be my first year as a Teaching Assistant in the Structured Learning Classroom. I was born in Dallas and grew up in Mesquite. After graduating high school, I decided to follow my passion for baking and graduated with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Bakery/Pastry. Some of my favorite colors are black and purple. My favorite Disney character is Jack Skeleton. I enjoy sweets, hence one of the reasons I decided to become a pastry chef. I adore making people smile and be happy. I also enjoy spending time with my son, Lukas. I am looking forward to all the adventure and challenges this school year, and I can’t wait to work with your children.
