Mrs. Martin is excited to be starting her 19th year at Governor’s Ranch. She has taught third, fourth, and fifth grade and cannot imagine a better community of learners. Prior to moving to Colorado, Mrs. Martin grew up under the magic of Disneyland in Orange County, California. She graduated from Long Beach State alongside her husband, Lee and together they decided to move to this beautiful state. Their greatest accomplishments include Karsyn (12), Reagan (10), and Jordan (7). When not at school, Mrs. Martin enjoys being with her family and friends, traveling, and outdoor adventures.
