Martina is exceptional as a teacher. Her demeanor and approachability is by far the best I have ever witnessed. She never raises her voice but can settle a rambuncious group of 6 yr olds. Her compassion and sense of humour just sets her apart. The kids respond by actively learning, being respectful, and trying their hardest. She can some how engage the children needing help and challenge the children already finished. She does so much but makes it look so easy. Then she volunteers during lunch to teach Junior Choir, but also she is there to help us reinforce at home and answer any parent questions. I adore this woman entirely.
