Education

I graduated from Bradley University in December of 2006 with my Bachelor's degree.  I am dual certified to teach Regular Education and Special Education. 

In 2009 I became certified to teach the Gifted/Talented.

In August of 2011 I completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

I recently completed my Ed. D (Doctorate in Education) in Curriculum and Instruction from Liberty University, I defended my dissertation in the Fall of 2015, and will participate in commencement exercises in May 2016.  



Experience

I taught ESE (Exceptional Student Education) in Orange Park, Florida prior to coming to Dade County.  I worked with K-6 grade Inclusion.

While at Dade Elementary, I have worked with 3, 4 and 5th grade Inclusion, spent 2 years working in the Self-Contained classroom, and now work with students with Emotional and Behavior Disorders (EBD) in grades K-5. 



Bio

Welcome to my web page! My name is Martha Plumlee and I teach Special Education for students in K-5th grade.  I love what I do and couldn't imagine doing anything different.  I am married and have four grown children.  I have six grand-children. Oh, and I am a die-hard Florida Gator fan! Chomp Chomp. 

I am in my 9th year of teaching in Special Education.  I waited a little late in life to pursue my dreams.  You are never too old to learn!

My whole philosophy in teaching in grounded in Constructivism, building upon what a child already knows.  I read once that, "Every child can learn, just not on the same day or in the same way"  ~George Evans.  I fully believe this to be true. 

I am blessed to have Elizabeth Holdaway working with me as my  paraprofessional again this year.
