My name is Martha Franks. It is a pleasure to work with you and your child this year. Most important I feel honored that I was chosen to work with the 4th grade team. I have been in the educational field for 20 years and have taught in the elementary level for most of those years. I graduated Cum Laude from the University of the Permian Basin with a major in English and certified with an elementary teaching level 1-8th grade. Also, I obtained my certification in Bilingual and English as a Second Language. I have numerous hours toward continued learning to remain up-to-date with new teaching information and teaching methods. Also, I have obtained my masters in administration and supervision and continue to pursue a second masters in counseling. I love playing the guitar and singing and would love to implement music into my instruction for review in content areas. Please feel free to contact the school if you ever feel the need to come and talk to me or set up a conference to speak to me about questions that you may have…..
