Jefferson Elementary–Meet the Principal 2024-2025


My name is Ms. Amber Martinez and this is my 22nd year in education.  I attended Northern Arizona University for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees.  Currently, I have 3 classes remaining and my dissertation to write to obtain my doctorate degree in Educational Leadership.  I have 2 beautiful, fun-loving children.  Ryen is a very athletic and active 15-year-old who will be in 10th grade this year and Jaxton is a fearless and rambunctious 6-year-old who will be in 1st grade.  We wholeheartedly enjoy creating memories in the outdoors with one of our favorite pastimes being camping.

I passionately look forward to a year of wonderful memories and strong academic success.  At Jefferson, we are 100% committed to closing the achievement gap felt from the world-wide pandemic.  We simply cannot make this happen without parental support from home.  PLEASE commit to being an active participant in your child’s education.  With multiple layers of support, it is a winning combination for all children.   

I am excited for the 2024-25 school year and am fully dedicated to your child’s academic progress at Jefferson Elementary.  Together, we will make certain your child has a memorable academic experience this year!  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please know I am here for you, my contact information is below. 


Yours In Education,

Ms. Amber Martinez
