Hello! I’m Mrs. Martin
Teaching is an absolute passion of mine. I am so excited to work with you and your child! I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us. Since I will be spending so much time with your child, I thought you might want to know a little about me.
I've been married to my wonderful husband Kevin for 17 years and we have two beautiful children, Emma (9th grade) and Chase (6th grade). On evenings and weekends you can find me cheering for my kids at their soccer games and other sporting events, walking my 2 dogs (Ruby and Raven) or enjoying the lake.
My husgand and I both grew up in New York state which is where we met and started a family. I began my teaching career with Johnston County Schools when we moved here in 2007, leaving those harsh winters behind. We love everything about North Carolina and consider it our home. Teaching is my passion and is at the core of who I am. I've had the opportunity to teach several different grade levels, but my absolute favorite grade to teach is kindergarten. I love being able to instill a love of learning in my students while watching them grow and accomplish new things each day.
I'm excited to begin this new journey with all of you at Thanksgiving Elementary School. I can't wait to get to know my students and find out what makes them unique!

At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
We are excited about heading into the last 15 school days before Christmas break. On Wednesday, Spirit Sticks will be sold for $1.00 a piece before school. We also want to remind parents to please park and walk your students into the office if you arrive after the doors are closed in the morning. We appreciate your cooperation with this.
Carpool has been running so smoothly in the mornings. We want to remind parents that you should not drop off students at the top of the bus driveway to walk down to school. You can walk from your home or take them through carpool line. We appreciate your cooperation with this as we try to keep everyone safe. We want to thank everyone who attended Heritage Day on Saturday. We had an amazing turn out, and we can't wait to do it again next year.
