Mrs. Marie Martin
I'm excited about beginning my 4th year teaching here at Lake Hazel Middle School!
After a successful 20+ year career in Operations Management and Analysis, I took a year off and became certified to substitute teach. I worked in classrooms from Kindergarten (herding cats!) to 12th grade. My favorite classes were at middle school. My second year of subbing began with a 12-week assignment here at LHMS, filling in for a teacher on maternity leave. Those twelve weeks were when I realized I would never return to high-tech - I fell in love with middle schoolers!
Middle school is such a pivotal time for our kids, and the growth they experience from 6th grade through 8th grade is amazing. I'm lucky enough to have all three grades in my classroom. I teach:
Earth Science/GT Earth Science (6th)
Life Science (7th)
Physical Science (8th)
This year I will also be coaching our cheerleading team - look for us on the sidelines of Football, Basketball (Girls and Boys), and Cross-Country.
When I'm not at school, I'm busy with my family. I have been married to my husband, Rob, for 31 years. We have 3 kids - ages 21, 15 and 12. We also have a two puppers, a kitty, two leopard geckos and two bearded dragons. Life is good!
Thank you for letting me teach your child this year - it is an honor and a privilege.
