I loved Marty! He taught me a lot. I had a very good relationship with him. He has also built a great band program at West. The only problem was that he had favorites.
I graduated from West and even though Mr. Martinez and I did not always see eye to eye on things, he is still a good teacher and a good guy.
martinez tears kids down if they are not "in" with him. he does help some but i have seen him ruin others spirits.
Mr Martinez has helped give my child self confidence and pride. He has taught teamwork, character and the pride of working hard and doing the best job you can.
