Hello! My name is Mary Martinez. This is my seventh year teaching in Kettering City Schools. I began my teaching career in KCSD as a student teacher at Greenmont Elementary. After graduation, I was hired at Greenmont where I taught kindergarten for two years before transferring to John F. Kennedy. This will be my 5th year teaching 3rd grade and I truly couldn't love it more!
I attended the University of Dayton where I received my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education in 2014. I completed my masters degree at Bowling Green State University in 2018 in Special Education with a concentration in Autism Spectrum Disorders. Educating and reaching each and every one of my students individual needs, whatever those might be, is something I am very passionate about.
My fiance and I live in Centerville, Ohio with our adorable schnoodle puppy named Duncan. Brandon and I will be getting married in March of 2021 when I will become Mrs. Mary Kiger!
