Mr. Martinus Cross

Hello Schim Panthers! I’m excited to begin my career as Assistant ISS here at Schimelpfenig Middle School.

I grew up in Sherman, Texas, where I enjoyed playing baseball, running track and playing basketball. After graduating from high school, I enlisted in the US Army at Fort Knox, Kentucky. During my time in the US Army, I have been fortunate to travel and see various parts of the country, i.e., Germany, Spain, Berlin, Amsterdam and even Bosnia.

After getting out of the military in 2000, my first civilian job was security officer at Adam’s Mark hotel (now Sheraton) in downtown Dallas. Prior to my current position here at Schim, I was in the hotel hospitality business for over 20 years. I am currently enrolled at Grand Canyon University getting my bachelor's degree in Christian Studies with an emphasis in Biblical Studies.

I am married to Clarice Cross; we have four children. Justina, Jordyn, Martinus Cross, Jr., and Kennedy.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, going to the movies (scary), spending time with my wife and kids and especially church.
