Ms. Martin is CSCS Teacher of the Year!

I knew that I wanted to be a teacher since I was in high school, where I took a class called YOUTH TEACH YOUTH.  We were allowed to walk to a neighboring elementary school to help out in the classrooms with their young students.  Ever since then, I have been growing and learning to be the most effective that I can for each and every one of my students.  I have taught most grades from K-5 and even taught English as a Second Language in Costa Rica for years.  Out of all the grades I have taught, Kindergarten is where my heart is most happy!  I have been teaching Kindergarten in Barnegat for the last 13 years.  I have realized, most importantly, that my very young students give me MORE than I could ever give to them.  I am blessed!
