Diane Martin, 1st grade
Welcome to First Grade! I love teaching children of all ages, but first graders are my favorite! This is the start of my twenty-seventh year to teach First Grade with Jenks Public Schools! I taught at Jenks East Elementary for sixteen years before moving to Southeast Elementary.
I graduated from Oklahoma State University with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. Also, I have a Masters degree from Oklahoma State University in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialty in reading.
As a teacher, I want to create an environment that is warm, caring, friendly and encouraging where children can learn and grow. I have high expectations for all children. My class consists of various types of learners. They will strive to solve their own problems, but know they can get help from me when they need it. I want to fulfill each child’s individual needs as much as possible. I strive to meet each child’s needs by using hands-on interactive teaching methods. My desire is to foster the love of learning in each child.
Together we will make this an exciting and very special year for your child. Your child will become a fluent reader, an author, a mathematician and a problem solver.
