Mrs. Martinez is a cradle Catholic and very blessed to be working at St. Peter Claver Catholic School. Born and raised in Miami, Laura went to the University of Florida for her undergraduate degree in Computer Science and her graduate work in Elementary Education. She came to Tampa when she met her husband, Jesus, who got a job transfer from Chicago. She has lived in the Valrico area for the past 12 years and taught in the public school system for the same amount of time. She is happily married with 3 children, Isaac, Veronica and Jesse. She attends Nativity Catholic Church in Brandon where her close family is active in Faith Formation. Teaching religion in a Catholic school has been one of her lifelong dreams.
