Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Alma Martinez

My name is Alma Martinez and I am a Spanish teacher at Russellville High School.  I have been teaching in Russellville for five years now, but I have been a teacher for 11 years.  I graduated from Russellville High School back in 1999, so I am glad to be teaching where I graduated from and where my Alma Mater is.  

I came to the United States when I was eleven years old, and I couldn't speak any English, so I know that speaking a foreign language is not easy, so I always like to encourage my students to learn the language or any other language, because anything is possible, I was able to learn English myself.    

I went to Northwest Shoals Community College and obtained my Associate's Degree in 2001.  Once I graduated, I went to the University of Alabama for two semesters and then transferred to the University of North Alabama where I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in education in 2004.

I am married to Sergio Martinez and we have four children, Esthela who is a Junior at RHS, Julian who is a Freshman, Lupita who is two years old and MariFer who is four months old.

My older children are part of the Marching Hundred, and we are happy to be Golden Tigers!
