Welcome to my page.
In 1985, I graduated from Garnett High School. After high school, I attended Emporia State University and graduated from Ottawa University in 1990. In 1991, I married Gary Martin from Emporia. We have three children: Ashlyn, Madison, and Garrison. My hobbies include watching my children participate in their activities, running, swimming, and other outdoor activities as well as coaching volleyball, basketball, and softball.
My teaching career began in 1990 in Atchison, KS at Mount Saint Scholastica Academy. In 1991 I moved to Eureka, KS, and after getting married, was a substitute and para in Hamilton, KS. In 1992, we moved back to Atchison County, where I began to teach Middle School Science and PE, at ACCMS, Effingham, KS. In 1994, we returned to Garnett and I began to teach Elementary PE at Garnett Elementary Center (GEC) and coaching for USD 365. In 2012 the new building was completed, Garnett Elementary School (GES), and I am able to continue to love what I do and do what I love every day with more than 400 students!!
