Mrs. Lynda Martin
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 am married to my wonderful husband, Kevin, and we have a daughter, Emma, who is in 5th grade, and a son, Chase, who is in second grade. They are the light of my life and take up most of my free time, but some of my hobbies are playing sports, swimming, going on long walks, spending time at the beach, and reading.
I grew up in a small town in upstate New York. I graduated from SUNY Oneonta in 2000 and worked for 7 years as a social worker and professional development trainer. In 2007, we decided to move to Clayton, North Carolina and left those long, harsh New York winters behind! I definitely do NOT miss shoveling snow! We absolutely love living here in North Carolina, which is where I started my elementary teaching career. I earned my teaching certificate from East Carolina University and I have been teaching in North Carolina since 2007. I have taught several different grade levels including kindergarten, first, third and fifth grade.
I LOVE teaching third grade and watching my students grow and accomplish new things each day. It is my mission to instill a love for learning in each of my students. Please do not hesitate to contact me anytime! I would love to hear from you and I can’t wait to get to know your child and what makes them unique. I look forward to a great year together!
