Ask Dr. Marta

As a veteran PreK-12 teacher and teacher educator I am committed to establishing vehicles for reaching teachers and parents with information that furthers the growth and development of our children, with a special emphasis on early learners (0-8). I believe that materials and strategies that stimulate the intellect and build confidence for life long learning are always in demand. I hope to support this important medium of information with products and expertise that reflect my experience in hopes that they may be useful to teachers, parents and others charged with educating our children and youth. If there is one thing I learned in 15 years as a PreK-12 teacher and 20 years as a teacher educator in higher education, it’s that teachers matter in the intellectual development of young minds. I’m stepping out into this blog world to share some of what I’ve learned over the years with you, so follow AskDrMarta and I’ll do my best to help.
