Hello Mountaineers!

I’m Ms. Melissa Martinez and I am one of the counselors here at Mead Elementary. For this school year I have the pleasure of working with grade levels Kindergarten, Second, and Fourth grade.

I have worked with Northside ISD for 17 years. I was a teacher for 13 years at Hatchett and Boldt Elementary where I taught in grades third, fourth, and fifth grade.

This is my fourth year being a professional school counselor. My last three years as a school counselor have been here at Mead. I love working with all the students, parents, teachers, and staff that are here.


I look forward to working with you all this school year. Please feel free to contact me at 210-397-1175 or through email at:
