 I attended Chipola Jr. College and earned my B.S. degree in Elementary Education from Troy State University in Dothan, AL.


I have been teaching at Malone School for 25 years. I began my teaching career in 4th and 5th grades which I taught for 5 years. I then had the opportunity to teach 1st grade and I fell in love with this grade! I've been teaching 1st grade for about 18 years! There is no other grade where you see the amazing progress a child can make in one school year! I consider myself very lucky to be able to teach at such a wonderful school!Getting to know my students and their families has been a great experience. I am now teaching the children of students I taught years ago! 


I have been living in Marianna since 1970 when my parents and 3 siblings moved to a small farm south of Marianna. Before 1970, my father was in the military and we moved several times all over the world! I lived in Germany for 5 years where my sister and brother were born. We then lived in Kansas, Alabama, and California until we moved to Marianna. My parents went on to have two more children...I am the oldest of 6 children!


I married Rick Martin in 1980 and we've been happily married for 32 years. We had our first and only child, Trent, in September of 2001. We have been living outside of Marianna for the past several years on the farm where my husband's family has lived for 4 generations!  

 We enjoy living out in the country and my husband and I hope Trent will one day have a family and raise his children on his family's homeplace.
