As we approach the halfway mark of the 2018-19 school year, Person High School (PHS) welcomed Jessica Martin as a new science teacher. She recently learned that it is never too late to become a Rocket.
Martin attended Virginia Tech after graduating high school and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Crop and Soil Environmental Science. When she first entered college, she was undecided on a major, but she definitely knew she wanted to pursue a career in the science field. Now, here she is, in her 10th year of teaching science.
“Learning about my new students in the middle of a semester was a challenge,” Martin said, “However, the faculty and staff here at PHS have made my transition less stressful. Everyone here works as a team and it shows.”
