Dr. Leslie Martinez

Welcome Selma High School staff, students, parents and community members.  I am so very excited to be your high school Principal for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.  My name is Dr. Leslie Martinez, and I have been in education for over 20 years.  I began my educational experience as a high school Resource Specialist, teaching student with exceptional needs.  This was and continues to be one of the highlights of my educational career.  I absolutely enjoy working with high school students in multiple capacities!  I then became a high school administrator, working with all grade levels and overseeing Special Projects.  I continued to do so for just over 11 years.  I feel we have all been working through some of the most challenging times in our education's history these past few year.  However, I am honored to be your Selma High School Principal, and will work diligently to meet the needs of absolutely every student at SHS with a "whatever it takes" attitude.  You as parents will be hearing from us soon, as we have a lot of information to share, students you will start the school year off with meaningful and exciting experiences, and staff, we are so very eager to have you all back and on board for an "in person," dynamic, exciting, teaching experience.  

My door is always open to all stakeholders, please do not hesitate to come by, email or call.  I look forward to meeting you all and having a fabulous school year, returning back to "as normal" as we possibly can! :)

Take care, stay safe, be healthy, and I will see you very soon. 


Yours in Education, 

Dr. Martinez
