TR WHO'S WHO: Michelle Martinez
Hi, my name is Michelle Martinez and I began working for Canton Therapeutic Recreation in May 2016. I have been a Community Social Worker since 1990 and transitioned into my current career as Special Education Teacher in 2006. I grew up and currently live in Canton. I have four children ranging in ages from 26 to 12 and three dogs ranging in ages 16 to 7. As a family we love being outdoors and traveling. In my spare time I enjoy reading. My kids are involved in many sports throughout the calendar year which also keeps me busy. I would love to continue with the TR program well into my retirement years and become a Respite Foster Care Mom.
My passion is making sure kids become integral community/society members. Everyone deserves a chance at all the opportunities afforded in life no matter what their "story" is. If/When you see me around the Summit or community, please say "Hi!". I am really looking forward to the Therapeutic Recreation Summer Program this year. We have a lot of activities planned that your son/daughter would love to be a part of. Have a wish filled day.
