Welcome to Bedford Junior High!

 

As I get ready for the 16/17 school year I get excited about building upon our successes we had the previous year. We had academic growth in all of our STAAR and EOC tests, had a great year with our Band and Choir programs, winning multiple wards, as well as experienced successful athletic seasons. I look forward to meeting a new group of students and welcoming back our returning students so we can continue our tradition of excellence.

 

About Me:

This year marks my 15th year in the H.E.B ISD and my ninth year as an administrator. My time in HEB comprised of for four years at Hurst Junior High, then two years at L.D. Bell where I taught and coached Football and Baseball before moving into administration. I spent seven years as Assistant Principal at Harwood Junior High before being named Principal of Bedford in 2015.

 

I received a Bachelor's degree in Education from McMurry University in Abilene, TX and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington.

My wife is an educator in the district as well, and we are proud parents to 6-year -old twin girls.

I am excited to be a Bedford Bronco and the Principal of Bedford Junior High. If I can be of any help to you please feel free to contact me by email, MichaelMartinak@hebisd.edu, or calling 817 788-3101.
