Gwendolyn Martin - Featured in the Pictorial DCPS School Calendar
“One of the greatest rewards in teaching is witnessing a student’s ‘aha moment.’ I am happiest when I am helping children grow academically – when I see them absorb the skills I’ve presented to them."
“I became a teacher to shape and change the lives of children to enable them to become lifelong learners and productive citizens in their communities. Of the 25 to 30 children I teach each day, one might become a famous doctor, lawyer, chief executive officer, or teacher."
“I believe that all children can learn and achieve when placed in a classroom with high expectations – and where the school, family and community join together in partnership for the best interests of the child.”
“I like that my teacher is nice. She’s kind. She helps students no matter what. She’s very easy to talk to.”
Rickia Parks, fourth grader, Savoy Elementary School
