Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Nyoka Martin, and I am very excited to be your child's Kindergarten teacher. My husband, Jeff, and I have been married for 19 years. We have two children attending Huntsville City Schools. When I'm not at school I like to spend time with my friends and family!

I am so lucky to be able to spend each day teaching and learning with such incredible children. The year in kindergarten is spent creating building blocks for learning. I aim to foster the love of learning through engaging activities, building of relationships, and high interest learning activities. I work to build a positive, emotionally and physically “safe” environment so children feel comfortable enough to stretch their learning. We explore and learn together, while meeting everyone’s different needs. I want the students to LOVE school and learning.
