Ms. Danielle Martin
My name is Danielle Martin and this is my second year teaching and my first year in the Smithville school district. I am a native of Springfield, Missouri where I graduated from Missouri State University. In my free time, I foster kittens for The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. I also enjoy reading, writing fiction, and spending time with my family and fiance.
I have always had a passion for English and the power of writing. In college, I enjoyed learning about African American literature, fiction writing, and literary analysis. My goal is transfer my passion for reading and writing to my students. This year, I will be teaching freshman English, film as literature, advanced creative writing, broadcast journalism, yearbook, and 21st century media. I will also be the National English Honors Society sponsor, junior sponsor, and assitant coach for the speech and debate team.
I will be a 9th grade warrior time teacher and I am BUILDING STRONG!
