Hello! My name is Mrs. Martella. I am thrilled to have you in my 5th grade class! We are going to make this year the best one yet!
I am originally from Jackson, Mississippi. I moved to Texas to go to Baylor University (Sic ‘em Bears!!) where I earned a degree in Elementary Education. I lived in Texas for 8 years before moving to Missouri.
I am married to my husband, Zackary. We have just recently moved to the area; he is stationed at Fort Leonard Wood. We have two dogs, or as I like to call them, “fur babies.” One is a Yellow Lab named Odi, and the other is a German Shepard named Kopper. You will hear plenty of stories about the trouble they get into!
This will be my fourth year to teach. I have taught 4th grade and 6th grade, and I am very happy to be in 5th this year! I hope to make this year interactive and engaging. My goal is to share my passion for learning in hopes of creating lifelong learners.
