Zamorano Fine Arts Academy celebrates Dia del Niño

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Reading is fun at Zamorano Fine Arts Academy.

Everyday, students look forward to spending time with Mrs. Martinez during reading club.

As part of “Dia del Nino” or Children’s Day, a traditional Mexican celebration honoring kids, Zamorano students are gifted with new books, courtesy of the San Diego Unified School District. They also get a little party.

But, perhaps, the biggest gift given to these students is their extraordinary teacher. Hilda Martinez is the district’s 2019 Elementary School teacher of the year.

“It’s so humbling. I’m here because it’s our passion. On behalf of all teachers, these are my kids I love them,” said Martinez.
