Hello, My name is Martha Prieto. I was born and raised in Colombia. I came to the United States 30 years ago. I graduated from  Externado University (Colombia) with a Bachelor's in Education. I received a Certificate of teaching PK-3 from Montclair State University, and a certificate for K-5 as well.
     When I am not teaching, I love to spend time at home with my family  and my lovely cat, Coco. We enjoy road trips, visiting museums, parks, reading and watching T.V. with a big bowl of popcorn!
     I have always loved to work with children because they are the best teachers. These are some quotes that inspire me.

    "No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure." Emma Goldman, author


    "Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. -Aristotle

                                              "Children are our most valuable resource."Herbert Hoover, 31st U.S. president

    Education is the Most Powerful Weapon for changing the World. -Nelson Mandela
