Mrs. Martin

Garnett, LaShauna / Welcome to Kindergarten

 

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!

    Report cards went home today. Please make sure to go over these with your children, then sign and return the envelopes. Tomorrow night is Spirit Night at Culver's on Hwy 70 in Clayton, near CVS and Bojangles. Come enjoy some delicious dinner at Culver's from 5:00-8:00, and a portion of the proceeds comes back to the students here at RDE.

    We hope that everyone had a restful and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday with their families. We only have 15 days of school until our break in December and we want to encourage everyone to make these days count. There is a PTA meeting on Tuesday evening at 6:00 in the River Dell media center. We would like to encourage everyone to come out and hear about all of the great things that our PTA has been up to. Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much!

    The weather is getting cooler, and we want to remind you to write your child's name inside of jackets, hats, gloves, etc. in case they end up in the lost and found. Also, please make sure names are written on student water bottles. We want to make sure that if items end up in the office we are able to return them quickly to their owners.
