Degrees and Certifications:
BS Physical Education
I was born and raised in Imperial, MO. About 30 minutes south of the city of St. Louis. In 2018 at the age of 25, I bought my first home in South City and still reside there. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from the University of Missouri- St. Louis (UMSL) in 2016. I began my career as a Physical Education teacher with SLPS during the 2017/2018 school year at Peabody Elementary. This school year will be my 4th year at Peabody! I am currently working on completing my Master's Degree in Athletic Administration from Southwest Baptist University with a projected graduation of July 2021.
Outside of school, I enjoy hanging out with my dog, a labradoodle named Sully. I enjoy watching sports and going to sporting events. My favorite teams are the St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues and Kanas City Chiefs. Some of my favorite events I have been to include Cardinals, Blues and Chiefs playoff games, a Yankee game at Yankee Stadium and a LSU football game at LSU. I also enjoy traveling. My favorite places I have been are New York City, New Orleans, Hawaii and Turks and Caicos.
It is with great excitement that I welcome you and your child to the 2020-2021 school year! I look forward to bringing another fun and exciting year of Physical Education to your child. While the start of this school year is different than any other school year, I am confident I can still bring your child the knowledge and skills they need to lead an active lifestyle while keeping it fun. During these difficult circumstances and our time apart we will be conducting our P.E. class through virtual learning on Microsoft Teams. The P.E assignments and material can be found under the teams page labeled Physical Education-Ms. Martin on your Microsoft Teams app. I will be with you and your child every step of the way as we navigate this new territory. We are in this together! If you have any questions or need additional help, please contact me. I believe in you, I miss you and can't wait to see you again!
