Meet Ms. Martin!
I grew up in Texas where I still have all of my family and visit as often as I can. I went to school at Seattle University and graduated with a Bachelors in English Literature and Film Studies. From there I moved to Memphis, Tennessee to join Teach for America, where I taught Second Grade for two years in the Achievement School District. During that time I got my Masters in Education from Christian Brothers University.
I am so exited to be back in Seattle, working in such a lovely school! I hope to foster a fun, nurturing environment that promotes hard work and open classroom discussion. QAE offers such a supportive staff that I know this year will be spectacular!
My extra time is spent playing board games, taking care of my cat (Sam) and dog (Sasha), traveling as much as I can, and reading whatever catches my interest. I look forward to the adventure this year brings.
