Born in Illinois and raised in Texas, Professor Martin discovered a love for the spanish language and culture through her travel experiences while working in the airline industry. She spent some time studying the language in Spain and as a result, she felt the Lord calling her into education, which led her to obtain a master’s degree in Instructional Leadership. After several years of teaching Spanish and bilingual education in the public school system, she decided to return to higher education to pursue another master’s degree in Spanish Literature with a desire to teach at the college level. However, the Lord had different plans and those plans joyfully led her to The Cambridge School of Dallas in 2017. When she is not sharing her passion for the language, she enjoys outdoor activities and traveling (especially to Spanish speaking countries) with her husband, Tom, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
