Mrs. Martin/Ms. Robinson - Grades 1/2





Teacher Introduction:

  

     My name is Liz Martin and I will be teaching First and Second Grade.  This will be my fifth year at Saint Michael School.  Before coming to this school, I worked as a substitute teacher for the Wachusett Regional School District in Jefferson, Massachusetts and the North Attleborough Public School System.

 

I earned my Bachelors of Arts degree from Anna Maria College in Paxton, Massachusetts with a major in Humanities and a concentration in Elementary Education.  In May of 2013, I successfully completed a Masters of Education degree with a concentration in Special Education, also from Anna Maria College.

 

I live in Greenfield, Massachusetts with my husband Adam, son Connor, and our dog “Coco”.  In my spare time I enjoy being with my family and friends, traveling, and going to the beach. 

 

My entire education has been in a Catholic school setting.  I am so excited for this new school year and very grateful that my dream (since 8th grade) of becoming a Catholic school teacher, has come to fruition.  I’m truly blessed to be able to share my faith, help others and work with the children here at Saint Michael School.



Mrs. Martin's Education Philosophy

    I believe that every student deserves an equal opportunity to learn.  As a teacher we are the support and stepping stones that children need to become outstanding citizens in their future.

    I believe that a classroom is a judgment free area and a place that provides structure and routines to help manage, engage, and support children’s behavioral and educational experiences.

    I believe that a Catholic education is an integral piece of a child’s education, by building their moral character, thereby developing into a responsible faith led citizen.




Teacher Introduction:

    My name is Logan Robinson and I am excited to introduce myself to all of you. I will be joining Saint Michael School this fall as a teacher in the elementary school! I will be team teaching with Mrs. Martin in the 1st/2nd grade classroom as well as providing support with 3rd and 4th grade science and mathematics.

    In the spring of 2016 I graduated from Wheelock College in Boston, MA with a degree in Early Childhood Education and Developmental Psychology. While in Boston I completed two student teaching placements where my love for teaching was confirmed. During the 2016-17 school year, I worked as a long term substitute in a 1st grade and then in a 2nd grade classroom at Green Street School in Brattleboro, VT. For the last four years I have also been working at Northfield Mount Hermon at the Bolger Center for Early Childhood Education in the preschool and toddler rooms. This summer I will be the lead preschool teacher at NMH.

    When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling to Boston and Maine to visit my siblings, watching sports, crafting, eating ice cream, reading and spending time with family and friends.

    I am look forward to joining the Saint Michael community and meeting all of you soon. Have a wonderful summer!

Best wishes,

Logan Robinson

Ms. Robinson's Education Philosophy

I believe that every child should be given an equal opportunity for learning. 

Successful learning takes place in a welcoming, positive environment that includes predictable routines and structure.  As a teacher, my role is to provide students with the materials and guidance they need in order to take risks and challenge themselves while they grow academically and spiritually in an environment in which they feel safe, trusted, and supported.
