Faculty Spotlight, Justin Martineau
When Justin Martineau started his career at De La Salle in the Fall of 2011, he dove head first into the Cavalier community. In addition to teaching religion, he is the Director of Student Activities, the head coach for girls basketball, the assistant campus minister, and the student council advisor. Justin plans the annual Lasallian Student Leadership (LSL) trip to St. Mary’s College in Moraga, California. Students spend a week at a leadership conference with students from other Lasallian schools from the San Francisco-New Orleans District. Students fundraise for this event throughout the year. One of their largest fundraising activities is providing secure parking in the De La Salle parking lot during the Mardi Gras parade season. This year De La Salle is offering parade parking on Thursday, 2/23, Friday, 2/24, and Sunday, 2/26. Sedans and coupes are $25 per car and all other vehicles are $30 each.
“Mr. Martineau passionately and energetically embraces his many roles here at De La Salle. Mr. Martineau’s work ethic ensures that our many school functions run smoothly, and he is always willing when called upon, to share his thoughts, to lend his logistical expertise, to set up or break down an event.” –Principal, Paul Kelly ’83
Justin attended Boston College, where he earned his B.A., majoring in political science and theology. Outside of De La Salle, he is an avid sports fan and holds season tickets to the Saints and the Pelicans. He is a fan of the MLB’s Red Sox and the NHL’s Bruins.
