Principal's Section

Silvia Martinez I would like to introduce myself. My name is Silvia Martinez and I am very excited to be the new Principal of Lee Elementary. Lee is a great place to be.
I come to you with a wealth of experience from K-12 and teaching Graduate courses in Leadership Education. I have been in education for seventeen years. My educational career began while I was in college at Universityof San Diego as a tutor at a High School. I have experience as a first grade bilingual teacher, a Reading Recovery teacher, an English Learner Support Teacher and a Vice Principal.  During this time,I was concurrently teaching classes with a Master’s in Collaborative Leadership Education Program at a Graduate University.

I believe that as the Principal of Lee it is crucial to build relationships with students, families and teachers. In addition to building relationships, it is particularly important to me make sure that your child and you feel safe at school. If you ever have a concern or question about a specific situation or procedure please does not hesitate to call or email me.


Communication is paramount in a school. For this reason, I encourage you to contact your child’s teacher or myself with questions.
