Mrs. Karli Martin
Thanks for stopping by to get to know a bit about me!
My name is Karli Martin and I have been teaching middle school since 2007. During that time, I have had the opportunity to work with many wonderful families, students, and staff members. I've also been fortunate enough the teach Social Studies, Reading/Language Arts, and Gifted Education across grades 6 through 8.
All my life I wanted to be a teacher and from a young age, I remember looking up to my parents, both educators themselves, and deciding that middle school was where my heart was. After graduating from Stow-Munroe Falls High School, I attended Kent State University. There I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Middle Childhood Education with a focus on Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies. This also provided me with the opportunity to complete my student teaching in South Africa, where I met my husband, Mr. Andrew Martin, now a PE teacher for Hudson City Schools. In 2009 I returned to Kent State to obtain a Master's Degree in Reading Specialization, with a K-12 Reading Endorsement and again in 2017 for a licensure as a K-12 Gifted Intervention Specialist.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, Landon and Nola. I can usually be found doing something active outside, reading a book, or in my kitchen whipping up something good to eat.
I'm thrilled to work with you this year and look forward to many exciting and educational moments! Take a minute, smile, and enjoy the adventure that we're on together. Have fun and remember, happy minds learn best!
