Martha Santa Maria
Martha is a Board Certified teacher of English on the Ohana Team. She started her dream job-- teaching at MUMS--the fall of 2000. Besides working with adolescents, Martha loves to read (her favorite writers include Ray Bradbury and Taylor Mali). You can find Martha working with students while snacking on salsa & tortilla chips with Cabot cheddar cheese or Lake Champlain dark chocolate. Martha is well suited for her chosen profession of middle school teacher since she is a kid at heart. While Martha works to facilitate dynamic learning opportunities that engage her students, if they fail, her most effective classroom motivator & management techniques include humor and her not-so-secret weapon...her garlic breath!
