Martin, Chris - 2nd Grade

Meet the Teacher
Welcome to my Classroom
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
 Mr. Martin
    I have been teaching for 17 years in Asheville. I graduated from UNC-Asheville with a BA in Psychology and a K-6 teaching certification. Then I received a Masters Degree in Education with a concentration in Theatre Education. I taught two years at Emmanuel Lutheran School as a pre-kindergarten teacher and then 12 years at Jones Elementary School in various grades.
   Creative thinking is important to teaching, and I teach creatively every second I get. My theatre background comes in handy when acting out stories, reading poetry, singing science and math songs, and bringing a read aloud to life. I like to think I make learning fun, but also engaging for all my learners. Technology, multicultural literature, discovery hands-on learning and problem solving are incorporated into my teaching. My class rules are love, listen, and learn, and I encourage students to do these things on a daily basis! Let's have an awesome year in second grade. Feel free to call or e-mail with any questions, concerns, or positive comments. The school number 828-232-4291 and my e-mail is
