Ms. Martinez's About the Teacher
This year is my 19th year at Redwood Middle School and my 35rd year teaching. I earned my bachlor's degree from The University of Redlands in 1985 and a master's degree in reading instruction in 2009.
I live in Thousand Oaks with one of my two sons, our cats and hedgehog.
Ms. Martinez's Extra Credit Policy
All students will be offered the opportunity to do extra credit once a trimester in both English and social studies. The assignment will be offered in the last weeks of each trimester and is generally worth approximately 50 points. I will explain the assignment in class, but the work will be done at home. Students typically have 1 week to do the extra credit. I do not accept any late extra credit assignments. When the offer is explained to the class, I will hand out an instruction sheet and post the extra credit timeline on my homework and calendar on my Redwood website. Extra credit will not be given to individual students; all students will receive the same opportunities.
When extra credit is scored, there will be a separate entry for it in Q. Students who do not do the extra credit will have a blank space. This blank space does not hurt anyone's grade; it is simply not part of the average unless done. There is no way extra credit can lower anyone's grade.

About Mrs. Salvoski
Welcome! This is my 30th year teaching in Conejo Valley Unified School District. I have my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. Teaching is my passion, and I love it just as much today as I did when I first started!
My students constantly amaze me with their thoughts on paper. Watching them write essays, that eventually show their voice and style, is very rewarding! Reading is also important to me. My philosophy is to encourage students to gain a love for reading that lasts a lifetime. Reading can take you to new places, other worlds, and give you new perspectives. Please encourage your child to read what interests them, but also encourage them to venture out to new genres.
In my French class, we learn basic vocabulary and all about the artists who were influenced by France: Degas, Cezanne, Lautrec, Rousseau, Gaugin, and Renoir. My favorites include Van Gogh (His Iris painting, dating back to 1890 is owned and on display at the Getty Museum in LA) and Monet whose "The Poppyfield near Argenteuil" was completed in 1873. We culminate with a French feast which includes escargots!
Redwood has been an incredible school for my children. Let me know what I can do to let you have the same experience!
