Mrs. Betsy Martin

Welcome to sixth grade! This will be a year of stretching and growing in every way imaginable. I thoroughly enjoy helping students experience a variety of genres, meet new characters, and improve as readers. Language Arts is my favorite subject to teach and I want to instill the love of reading in all my students. Remember, a book can take you anywhere!

Throughout my years of teaching I've taught grades K-6 and enjoyed them all, but I think sixth grade is my favorite. I came to Hallsville in 2016 and as the old saying goes, I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could!

My husband and I moved to Longview in 2005 and we love east Texas! We have two grown children and three fabulous grandchildren. Our son and his family recently moved to the Dallas area after living in California for almost 8 years. We are happy to have them so close! Our daughter is still in California, but has plans to move back to Texas as soon as possible. 

*One last note - Please be sure to include the number 2 in my email address (bmartin2@hisd.com). Without that all-important number 2, your email will go to another teacher on another campus. She's very kind to forward them to me, but it might be easiest to skip the middle man and send them straight to me!
