Martha Sawyers – 3rd Grade Teacher

I am pleased to join MCA for my first year on faculty! I have taught for eighteen years in a variety of grades including first, third, fifth and fourth grade; with the majority of my experience in fourth grade. I proudly graduated from Salem College in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in English along with an elementary teaching license for grades K-6. Through intensive self-motivated professional development, I achieved the status and license of a Nationally Board Certified Professional Teacher.  I adore the power of rich text and the value a strong literacy foundation can offer students. I am from King and still reside in the small town where I am a mother to the love of my life; my thirteen year old daughter, a wife to my husband, and we all share the house with two cats that run the show, it seems! 🙂 I feel abundantly blessed to have this teaching opportunity at MCA!
