Florida Teacher Gifted Super Bowl Tickets From NFL Legend
A Florida teacher was gifted Super Bowl tickets, and the person who gave them to her is an NFL legend. Mary Martinez is a teacher at Pinecrest Elementary school in the Miami area. What she’s known for is for her creative football themed lessons and because of that she got a visit from NFL legend, Dan Marino. Dan Marino is an NFL Hall of Famer who played his entire career for the Miami Dolphins. Firstly, Martinez received a video message from Dan Marino, recognizing her work. Secondly, he announced that she will be going to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas this year. Finally, she actually had to rewatch the video because she actually didn’t believe that he was gifting her with the Super Bowl tickets.
What Got The Attention Of The NFL
She uses football and creative ways to help her students learn the lessons she is teaching. The way she taught her lessons became viral on social media, and obviously got the attention of the NFL and Dan Marino. So, even though the Dolphins which is her favorite team did not make the Super Bowl she will be cheering for the 49ers against the Chiefs in this year’s Super Bowl. If you remember earlier in the playoffs, the Chiefs were the ones who eliminated the Dolphins from the playoffs.
How cool is that for that Florida teacher. All I know is that if someone told me to watch a video and then Tom Brady showed up on the screen saying you won Super Bowl tickets I don’t know if I’d believe it. I totally understand this woman having to watch it a second time with Dan Marino, telling her that she won Super Bowl tickets for her to believe it. I love that Mary Martinez is teaching and way to help her students understand the lessons better. Using football can definitely help kids understand when maybe traditional teaching wouldn’t.
