Welcome to Ms. Marte's Teacher Page
Hello! This will be my fourth year working for the San Lorenzo School District. I have worked with youth since 2008 and love everything about working with young people-their courage, resiliency, sense of humor, kindness, and motivation to learn. Every student has something beautiful to bring to the world, and I get the pleasure to see it firsthand as they read and reflect, write, and explain their reasoning and curiosities in math, science and history. Then I step back and learn everything I can from them as they interact with peers and build community. I have a special interest in mindfulness and hope to continue this work with students, staff and my own family.
"No mud, No lotus" -Thich Nhat Hanh
We grow from what we go through. It takes hard work, mistakes, forgiveness of self and others, and a lot of perseverance to be successful. I hope to always be compassionate of these ideas and to help students to find joy in the process of growing and learning.
I studied Criminal Justice and Human Development at Cal State University East Bay. I completed my teaching credential and Masters of Education at Mill's College.
District Tools I Use
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.
I have not started to use the Aeries Standards-based Gradebook, but will update my Teacher Page when I begin using it. If you are subscribed to this page, you will be notified via email.
Sangha Interactive App
I have not yet started to use the Sangha App to communicate with families. I will update my Teacher Page when I begin using it. If you are subscribed to this page, you will be notified via email.
I use Google classroom to share videos and for students to complete writing assignments. If you would like daily or weekly digests of activities and missing assignments, I can invite you as a guardian. Please email me with your request and email address.
Other Tools I Use
I currently use the Remind app to communicate with families and may continue to use it until I transition to Sangha. I will send home information for Remind but you can always me if you need to be invited.
I like providing a morning snack to students and appreciate Goldfish donations from families.
