• Welcome to Mrs. Martin’s Kindergarten class. This is the start of my 17th year of teaching, my 7th at Dalton Elementary. I can say with confidence it is the best school in the world! My teaching adventures have taken me from Massachusetts, to California, Arizona, Texas, Kansas and now, Idaho.  My family moved here in 2014 from Kansas, and we immediately fell in love with the Inland Northwest. My husband, Chris, works at NIC, and our daughter, Emma, attends Canfield Middle School. We also have an ornery old boxer named Dozer who rules our roost.

    I love teaching Kindergarten! During this exciting milestone year we will develop our skills as readers, listeners, authors, artists, scientists, mathematicians, public speakers, problem solvers, social scientists, and most of all, as kind humans! Let’s get started!
