Meet Aleisha Martinez

Current title/school? Choir director at North Belton Middle School

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? I am fortunate to work in a school district where the administration, staff and our families support the Fine Arts. I challenge myself and my students to always look for the message in the music and to apply that to our daily lives. Music is powerful!

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I didn’t learn to read music until I was in college! I had to work really hard to catch up with my peers, but I feel that it helps me to relate to the students I teach – I understand the struggle and I know personally that if you keep working hard it will pay off!

What was a pivotal moment in your career? The pandemic has brought lots of pivotal moments for so many educators. I think that the last two years have taught me that I am capable of more than I thought! We survived shutdowns, remote learning and in-person learning at the same time, plus all the other things that life has thrown our way. Resilience and a positive attitude can go a long way!

Academics? Bachelor of Music from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.
