Principal Amber Martinez

Dear Bulldog Parents and Students,


My name is Mrs. Amber Martinez and this is my 18th year in education. I attended Northern Arizona University for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. My husband, Steven Martinez, and I have 2 beautiful children.  Ryen is a very athletic and active 11 year old who will be in 6th grade this year and Jaxton is a fearless and rambunctious 2 year old. We wholeheartedly enjoy creating memories in the outdoors, with one of our favorite pastimes being camping.


This year we are most definitely treading in uncharted waters. Our first priority will be the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. The district is committed to providing necessary resources to help keep our building sanitized and safe. Jefferson is also committed to closing the achievement gap from the shut-down last school year. The teachers are working tirelessly to create lessons that will cover last year’s standards as well as integrate the current year standards. We simply cannot make this happen without parental support from home. PLEASE commit to being an active participant in your child’s education.   


In these unprecedented times I am dedicated to your child’s academic success at Jefferson Elementary. Together we will persevere through this school year.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please know I am here for you, my contact information is below.  Stay Safe!!


Amber Martinez
