Welcome to Mrs. Martin's Homepage:
This website is for Science 8. I am one of the teachers on the 8th grade Mustang team, and an AVID trainer. I have been in education for 19 years, and look forward to a great year in Integrated Science. We will be using computers in class this year on a daily basis, so please be sure to bring your ChromeBooks fully charged every day! Below is my student/parent class contract. All work for the day will be posted in my Agenda Slides, any attachments will be found here as well as often as possible. Please let me know if you need anything to assist in the success of your student, we are a team in making the experience as wonderful as possible in Science this year!

Advice for Success:
You are your child's best resource. Research shows the more involved the parent is in the student's academics and school, the higher the achievement regardless of ethnicity, culture, gender, or current performance, so stay involved! Do not let the idea they are growing up fool you into thinking they do not need you to help them monitor and manage their daily school work and outside activities.

About Me:
I grew up in San Jose, went to U.C. Santa Cruz, graduated with a Bachelor's in Psychobiology. I received both my Master's in Multicultural Language Acquisition and Development and my Administrator's credential from National University. I am a Google Educator, and love increasing my understanding of how the human brain acquires new information. I am a huge science geek and love the outdoors, minions, yoga and soccer; go Red Devils!
