Dr. Martin, North Ranch Elementary Principal

Dear North Ranch Families, 

I am so honored and happy to be starting another year at the Ranch. While these are unique times, I have total confidence in our staff to always provide the best learning opportunities for your children. For those new to the Ranch this year a little introduction. I have been in the Paradise Valley Unified School District since 2008, although I actually started my teaching journey in 2000 in the Scottsdale Unified School District. I have taught all levels of education, but believe my true passion is for the elementary learning environment. I believe engaging and supporting all children early on their path to success starts at the induction level of education, and is enhanced by the ongoing parent, teacher, and community partnerships. This partnership is a collaborative effort that ensures each child can reach their highest potential. Every child at North Ranch is capable of growth and success, with no exceptions.

I am the mother of three boys, my oldest son Calvin is a graduate of Northern Arizona University, Colman is a graduate of the University of Arizona Eller School of Business, and my youngest son Clayton is a Senior at Desert Mountain High School. I myself am a graduate of the University of Arizona where I received a BS in Family Studies, followed by post-graduate work at the University of Phoenix with a Masters of  Education in Administration and Supervision. I have just defended my dissertation in July and completed my Doctoral Studies in the field of Educational Leadership.

I look forward to a wonderful ever-changing year here at the Ranch and am excited to be a part of your child's success.  My door is always open and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you! Please feel free to stop by the Ranch anytime!

I believe at North Ranch we should challenge and support every student, every step of the way, while providing a culture where they are safe, known, and cared for.
