Martha currently serves as Assistant Head of Lower School at Allendale-Columbia School, Rochester, NY, where she has been for 15 years. While there, she was also Head of the school’s Pre-Primary Division, a first grade teacher, and admissions evaluator. Prior to her current school, Martha was a first grade teacher and Reading specialist at Saint David’s School, NYC for many years.
Martha received her B.S. in Elementary Education from Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY; and a M.S. in Reading from Fordham University, NYC. She has received numerous awards over the years for her leadership and teaching, specifically for working in early childhood education and curriculum development.
