Dawn Martin named Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Dawn Martin for being named Teacher of the Year by the Affton Chamber of Commerce. Miss Martin was recognized for her involvement inside and outside the classroom. In addition to teaching Algebra and Calculus, Miss Martin coaches basketball and track and is the faculty advisor for Student Council. She is constantly positive and takes on whatever task is needed. She is a role model for her students and invests in building relationships. Through innovative strategies, she makes learning engaging and relevant, and it pays off! 

We have been blessed since 2013 to have Miss Martin on the faculty staff at Lutheran South. Her undergrad degree is from Concordia University- Nebraska (BS in Secondary Education). In her spare time, Miss Martin enjoys staying active, playing basketball and following Nebraska Huskers Football. 

Her favorite Bible verse is "In his heart, a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps." - Proverbs 16:9.
