Hello from Southern California!
My name is Carol Martinez. I can't believe I'm on my 24th year of teaching already! You'd think that I'd have it all under my belt by now, but I still feel like I'm learning something new every year. Besides enjoying my third graders, my colleagues are definitely a big part of why I love teaching...they keep me smiling, laughing, and encouraged.
Besides teaching, I'm a mother of two elementary aged kids, a wife, daughter, aunt, and friend. I come from a family of teachers. Both of my parents taught, along with my sister, cousins, aunts, and grandma! I am honored to carry on the legacy of teaching in our family.
My family enjoys Scouting activities with both kids, camping, swimming, and playing with our puggle, Nacho. I personally enjoy antiquing (I collect depression glass and vintage Pyrex), walking, music, and have a healthy obsession with Pinterest!
Thanks for checking out my blog. I was a little nervous about having enough to talk about, but was reminded by more than one source that talking should not be an issue with me. Ha ha!!
