Hi, my name is Joan Martin, I am the eighth grade corrective reading, math and language arts EC inclusion teacher. I am a graduate from NC A&T State University and obtained my masters from Salem College. I have two children,two granddaughters and one grandson. I believe that all children can learn when given the proper tools. I believe in helping children build their self-confidence, encouraging them by telling them that they are somebody and they can do anything that they put their minds to do. All children learn differently. I believe in going the extra degree to prepare students to be successful in the 21st century.
It's true that a doctor is allowed to usher life into the world in a single magic moment. I have learned that a teacher is allowed to see that life get reborn each day with new questions, ideas, and friendships; that education is the soul of a society as it passes from one generation as is reborn in the next.
