“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis
My name is Brenda Martin. This is the beginning of my 25th year teaching at Holy Cross. I love teaching third grade! I am a proud graduate of Western Oregon State College. My husband's name is Tim. I have three children. My oldest is a recent graduate of Oregon State University. My twins are juniors at Oregon State University. Go Beavers! In my free time I enjoy running, walking my beagle Stella, reading, and watching sporting events. I hope your child has a year that is filled with fun memories of third grade.
