About Mrs. Martens
I am so excited to join the CCS family as the new 2nd grade teacher. I have my Associates Degree in Elementary Education and have worked in after school programs, in Northern Idaho, and have even had the unique experience of teaching overseas. I am excited to see how God uses me to teach, encourage and inspire the incredible students I have been blessed with in my classroom this year.
I believe in motivating students through positive reinforcement using a life affirming and supportive goal achievement philosophy. I believe in setting clear boundaries and creating a character based learning environment with restorative consequences. I have been inspired to work with kids throughout my whole life.
I have loved traveling to orphanages in Africa and Mexico, and working within the school system in northern Idaho, where I grew up in Riggins. I enjoy encouraging kids, and others, to be the best version of themselves. I love the outdoors, hiking, fishing, hunting, kayaking, art, writing, and hanging out with my husband and 13 year old daughter.
Our deepest healing will often come through what once was perceived as our deepest tragedy, yet now is our greatest gift.
