Ms. Mary-Bridget Martin
Ms. Martin teaches 6th-8th grade science. Her room is always busy, with plenty of hands-on activities to keep her students engaged.
Ms. Martin teaches her students the importance of taking risks and working hard - lessons they can apply to science and to life.
Why do you teach?
I teach because I strongly believe that all kids should have the opportunity to authentically connect with science, and that starts with being in a conducive environment. I take pride in creating a space that welcomes curiosity and innovation, where students begin to envision themselves as scientists through commitment and hard work.
Why do you teach at Mason Prep?
Mason Prep is unique in its ability to hold high academic and character standards, while also providing a genuine, inclusive atmosphere. I’ve felt at home from day one and knew that Mason Prep would appreciate and support how much I care about my role as a teacher.
What do you want your students to get from having known you?
I want my students to leave my classroom knowing what it feels like to be successful through consistent hard work and taking risks. I want them to trust that science can lead to success in all areas of life, and most importantly, how to bring an innovative idea across the finish line. It starts with practicing productive habits, which will support them well beyond their academic years.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love spending time with my family, being outside, and doing anything spontaneous, creative, or hands-on: calligraphy, watercolor painting, photography, and gardening are always at the top of my list.
