Before coming to Morgan, she taught science at Jared Eliot Middle School on team 7.2. She attended College at Embry- Riddle Aeronautical University and majored in Aeronautical Science to become a pilot. Besides attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, she majored in teaching at Southern Connecticut State University. During her first week at Morgan, Mrs. Martino said, “The day was busy, fast, friendly, and people were very happy to be back.” The students she had taught prior, were now the same but a bit more mature and open. Her hobbies include hiking and traveling and spending time with her family. Mrs. Martino chose to teach science because she believes that it is an important subject in life because students get to figure out how the world works and become more knowledgeable.
