David is immediately praised for his good looks, incredible spanish and sparkly white teeth that he obtained from his days as a tooth model.
After meeting him, Will Schuester asks David for coffee. David reveals that he is from Ohio but raised by a household that spoke only spanish, hence his native-sounding tongue. David continues by saying he learned english through television shows that sang, and he soon evolved a love for singing and dancing. David tells Will that if he wants his kids to understand spanish more, teaching them through means of singing will have them speaking spanish without them even realizing it.
Acting upon David's words, Will invites David to Glee Club and has the kids sing spanish-related songs. Santana Lopez, interested in David and also disappointed by Will's inability to speak Spanish, complains to Principle Figgins about Will as the Spanish Teacher. Will discovers this later in the episode, accepts that he truly doesn't have a passion for spanish and decides to give it up for a history opening at McKinley. In his place David Martinez is offered the position, a dream of his. He hugs Will passionately and thanks him.
