Meet Mrs. Martinek
Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Cedar Hills! It is great to be back with all of the wonderful students, parents, and staff that make Cedar Hills a wonderful place to be! I look forward to this being the best year yet!
I have lived in Minnesota and Texas in addition to Kansas, but grew up in the Olathe school district from 3rd grade on. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be a teacher! My older sister Lindsay is also a teacher—she teaches 5th grade in Olathe. After graduating from Olathe South, I headed off to K-State and spent four wonderful years getting my degree in Elementary Education, Special Education, and a minor in Leadership Studies. Although I got my master's degree at KU, I am still definitely a Wildcat at heart!
In my free time I love to watch movies, read, go to concerts, scrapbook, spend time with friends and family, and play the viola. Traveling is a huge passion of mine, whether it is taking a road trip or going to a different country! My favorite sports teams are, of course, the K-State Wildcats and the Minnesota Twins!
