• Welcome back students, my name is Chris Martinez and I would like to welcome everyone to my 8th grade science class/ leadership class.  This is my first year at Ford Middle School, I am excited to be here and be a part of your learning experience.  This is my 7th year teaching middle school science and absolutely love sparking the interest in science in students minds.  I grew up in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan and joined the Marine Corps after high school.  I served from 2002-2006 where deployed twice to the middle east as an artillery mechanic.  After the military I moved to the Rio Grande Valley where I attended the University of Texas at Brownsville and studied science education.  My interests include chess, robotics, gardening, bird watching, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, camping, and anything outdoors.  I am happily married and have two boys 1 and 3 year old.
