• Hi everyone!


    Welcome to 1st Grade! My name is Stephanie Martz and I am so excited to be your new teacher! This is my fourth year teaching and I am thrilled to be starting a new year. I am a Double Duke - I graduated from James Madison University with both my Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in elementary education. I think that 1st grade is such an exciting year and I can't wait to get started!


    In 1st grade, we will do lots of exciting work. I like to use technology as much as possible as well incorporate projects, games, and hands-on learning. Since we are a BYOT school, I strongly encourage you to bring your own technology to use in the classroom on a daily basis! We will definitely be working hard this year, but we are going to have a blast doing it!


    If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at any time. You can email me at stephanie.martz@lcps.org or call the school phone number and leave a message. Communication is critical in making the school year a success for everyone, so please do not hestitate to reach out!


    I look forward to a great year and getting to know everyone!




    My new puppy, Milo!
