Inlet Grove’s Web Design instructor, Mr. Martinez, says he discovered teaching by accident.

“My wife got the job for me and I ended up loving it,” said Mr. Martinez, who began working at Inlet in 2008. “I decided to leave my previous job when a career popped up at Inlet.”

Mr. Martinez is the mentor of the Robotics Club, whose meetings take place after school on Tuesdays. He said he considers robotics of prime importance and is proud to introduce it to students.

“Exposing such technology, amongst students who otherwise would never have had that opportunity is really important,” he said. “Robotics, at one point or another, will be greatly intertwined with our society. It’s going to be part of our daily existence in the near future.”

Mr. Martinez said he hopes kids can get “as much as they can” out of the Robotics Club. The most important part of the class for him, though, is when students learn, he said.

“When kids begin to understand the concept – for example, if I’m teaching a lesson and kids start to understand what I’m saying – that’s the most rewarding part of teaching.”
