Mr. Knolan Ryan Martz

Thank you for visiting, my name is Coach Martz.  I grew up in Indiana and spent a lot of time in Florida and New York as well.  Being in basketball crazed Indiana, I loved basketball.  Upon completing my playing career, I entered into the beginnings of my basketball coaching and athletic training experiences.  As a young adult, I was able to work in various settings through non- profit leadership roles.  In 2015, I began a leadership foundation that collaborated various non profit, business, and athletic experiences & international networking to give back to communities.  Part of this effort was directed through national collegiate scouting and mentorship of student athletes.  This close interaction with youth and understanding of collegiate guidelines propelled me to re-connect with school systems in a deeper way.  As Saint Louis has become home for our family, I felt there was no entitiy closer to the heart of the city than that of our great school system.  I have two children that are the center of my universe.  I enjoy our family dinner time, our morning coffee, coaching their sports teams, spending time outdoors, time along the coastline, and Notre Dame football & Indiana Basketball.  My passion for education is consistent with the words taken from J. Edgar Hoover, "If you want to change the world, change one generation."  Serving in the district and at Roosvelt High School provides me another opportunity to give back and be a part of team that believes in our city's next generation
