Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Wendy Martin
Welcome to 6th grade at Cooper Upper Elementary! This is my 15th year teaching; my 9th year with 6th graders at Cooper. I have also taught 1-5 grades at Garfield, Grant, Randolph, and Hoover. I have a 10 year old daughter here at Cooper and a 13 year old son at Emerson, and am married to my high school sweetheart. This year we will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary! I have a business degree from CMU in accounting and human resources, but went back to school after 5 years to earn my elementary and math certifications so I could become a teacher. I also have a masters degree in reading.
I'm addicted to coffee, chocolate, and ice cream, but also love Sour Patch Kids!
Mr. Aaron is my teaching partner. He will be teaching science to our students. I'll teach social studies, ELA, and math.
You will need notebooks, folders, basic writing and drawing supplies. Please, no binders! I am also going to ask that families NOT send in Clorox Wipes or Antibacterial soaps or hand sanitizer. Many of these items contain harsh chemicals that trigger headaches and allergies and I'm trying to go greener this year in our room. I also have plenty of plastic storage baggies, so those are not needed either. We always seem to run short on Kleenex, though, and would appreciate any you.can give.
The best way to reach me is through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our ClassTag group.
