Welcome to 5th Grade at NCSA

My name is Jeff Martinez and I am thrilled to be joining Nevada City School of the Arts this year as part of the fifth grade team.  Over the course of my career I have taught kindergarten through twelfth grade in diverse learning communities in schools located in Malaysia, Italy, Indonesia, Austria, the Caribbean and California.  Each school has provided unique opportunities to incorporate the local natural environment into the classroom.  Whether biking through the rainforest, snorkeling over corals, hiking or camping in deserts and mountains, these hands-on experiences are critical components to providing relevance in our learning.  It is wonderful to have a campus with such natural beauty to incorporate into our learning activities here at NCSA.  I feel fortunate to be part of a community that values the integration of the arts and nature into our learning experiences.  I look forward to meeting the students and the greater NCSA community as we begin our next adventure together.


5th Grade is a year of exploration, completion, and transformation.
