Ms. Martinson was introduced to the world of Montessori when her daughter started at Acorn. As her family grew, her next two children also enrolled at Acorn. Nancy and her husband were Montessori parents for a total of 7 years and throughout those years she attended Acorn Parent Education Workshops, volunteered in their classrooms, and adopted the Montessori philosophy in her home. Finding her passion to be a Montessori teacher, she began working as a substitute teacher which lead her to the decision to obtain her Montessori teaching certification
Ms. Martinson believes the Montessori method of teaching giver the teacher the flexibility to meet the needs of each individual child academically, as well as socially and emotionally.
Since her educational background was in civil engineering, she brings her expertise to the Acorn children in the After-School Workshop programs.
When Nancy is not teaching she enjoys reading, biking, and cooking.
