About Me

Welcome to my homepage.
My name is Mary Martha Embry and I am a teacher at Southside Elementary in Fernandina Beach, Florida. I teach gifted students in grades K-5.

About My Classroom

I teach critical thinking skills, research skills, and time-management/organizational skills using thematic units based primarily on ancient civilizations. I also incorporate the arts into my program.

In addition to teaching the gifted, I am a member of a team that is currently developing a two-acre schoolyard ecocenter which could be utilized by all students in Nassau and surrounding counties through field trips.

I am very interested in meeting with other gifted teachers and those interested in schoolyard ecocenters.
