    I'm excited that another school year has started, which means lots of reading and writing for students and myself. This is my first year at Harper Park, and it's a great place to be. Before coming to the Park, I taught seventh and eighth grade English at another middle school in the Leesburg community for 12 years.


    Before becoming a teacher, I had my own writing and editing business called Editorial Options. Prior to venturing out on my own, I was the editorial director at the Society for Human Resource Management in Alexandria, Va.  In that position, I oversaw the production of the association’s magazine, newspaper and publications website.

    I graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonsburg, Va., with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Journalism. I received a Publications Specialist Certificate from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. , and my education in teaching from Shenandoah University based in Winchester, Va.


    The best way to reach me is via email, which is: michelle.martinez@lcps.org.
    I look forward to teaching your child, and more importantly, getting to know your son or daughter. 
    Class assignments will be posted on google classroom. Your student will have the login information.
