Mrs. Martin's Page
I am a 7th grade science teacher. This is my seventh year teaching.
I am a graduate of Texas A & M University. Whoop!
I grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy and that is one of my biggest inspirations to become a teacher. It is my hope to be an inspiration and driving force for our students to seek knowledge and enjoy science.
This year we are going to be studying Life Science. Science is all around us. It is important that every student come to class prepared to learn and with the positive attitude.
