Hello! Welcome to my web page. I am Jackie Martin and I teach Kindergarten at Warsaw Elementary. I graduated from Otterbein College with a Bachelor of Science degree along with a Reading Validation in 1988. I have been teaching ever since. My Master degree was accomplished at Muskingum College in the area of Curriculum many years ago. I enjoy teaching children and making learning fun for all students.

Here are my thoughts about teaching children...
WHOSE CHILD IS THIS?
"Whose child is this?" I asked one day.
Seeing a little one out to play.
"Mine", said the parent with a tender smile
"Mine to keep a little while
To bathe his hands and comb his hair
To tell him what he is to wear
To prepare him that he may always be good
And each day do the things he should"
"Whose childis is this?" I asked again
As the door opened and someone came in
"Mine", said the teacher with the same tender smile
"Mine, to keep for just a little while
To teach him how to be gentle and kind
To train and direct his dear little mind
To help him live by every rule
And get the best he can from school."
"Whose child is this?" I ask once more
Just as the little one entered the door
"Ours" said the parent and the teacher as they smiled
And each took the hand of the little child
"Ours to love and train together
Ours this blessed task forever."
