Mr. Shawn Martinez

My name is Shawn Martinez and I am the Principal of Junction School District.

After 20 years in North State high schools (Fall River, Anderson and West Valley) as an English/History teacher, GEAR UP Coordinator and Counselor, I served two years as assistant principal and two more years as principal at Buckeye School of the Arts.  I am honored and excited to now be the Principal of Junction School. 

I was born and raised in Susanville California, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree (English) and teaching credentials from CSU, Chico.  I obtained my Master’s Degree in School Counseling from the University of La Verne.  I completed my administrative credential through the Shasta County Office of Education and Brandman University.  I enjoy most sports and have had the wonder experiences of coaching high school football (16 years), tennis and my daughter’s youth soccer teams in the Redding area.

Through the years as an educator and coach, my greatest satisfaction and reward come from watching students’ academic and personal growth paving a pathway to successful post-secondary experiences and adult lives.

My wife Chelsea and I have spent the last 20 years together in Shasta County.   We value the variety of outdoor and recreational opportunities the area provides.  The Redding area schools and community provide a safe and enriching experience for our two daughters to learn and thrive.
