About the Teacher
About Mrs. Martin
I am a graduate of Southaven High School, Memphis State University (the University of Memphis), and the University of Mississippi. I also attended Mississippi State University where I was a member of the "Famous Maroon Band" for two years.
I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Language Arts and Reading. I am "highly qualified" to teach middle school language arts. I am also certified to teach gifted classes.
I have been teaching since 1985. I have taught at Rozelle Elementary School, Hernando Elementary School, Elliston Baptist Academy, Horn Lake Intermediate School (traveled daily to Hernando Middle School and Southaven Middle School to teach SPOTLIGHT), and Olive Branch Middle School. I have taught many grade levels and many different subjects during my teaching career. I'm happy to be back at HLIS and teaching fourth grade ELA and SS.
I was born in Indianola, MS. I grew up in DeSoto County (Nesbit, Hernando, and Eudora). I attended DeSoto County Schools in Hernando and Southaven. (I went to first through third grade where the DCS County Office is now located.)
I am married and have three sons, two daughters-in-law, two grandsons, and one dog.
