Join us in celebrating the January USD 480 Educator of the Month, Ms. Martin from MacArthur! She has been with USD 480 for 12 years and currently teaches a 2nd and 3rd grade mixed grade-level classroom. She serves as a role model and mentor to her fellow educators at MacArthur. To observe Ms. Martin’s classroom is to observe a master class in teaching, she makes it all look so easy even when it isn't. Ms. Martin is truly a gift to her students, MacArthur, and USD 480. We are so thankful to have her!
