Hello My Name Is...

Debbie Martyn

Mrs. Martyn

Welcome to my page!  I have been teaching grades 6-12 ELA since 1990, and I am excited for the 2019-2020 school year!  I try to teach my students not only the essentials of reading and writing, but also how to prepare for high school success and beyond.  Until three years ago when I joined the faculty at JMS, all of my years in education were spent teaching high school, so I know what the expectations will be in high school. I also emphasize planning for the future, organizational skills, and the ability to work cooperatively.
 I am the proud mom of Rachel, University of Florida graduate and Customer Service Manager at Publix, and Harper, a Coast Guardsman. My husband and I love our empty-nest life of boating, traveling, and "parenting" our dogs.
