Pablo A. Martinez, now in his second year at Riverdale, teaches French and Spanish.

In an article for Independent School magazine, a publication of the National Association of Independent Schools, Pablo A. Martinez writes about his search for a teaching position after working in universities and parochial schools.

He visited numerous independent schools in Maryland, New York, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C. before taking a job at Riverdale.
