Ms. Martha Reilly

I have been teaching 5-8 math for the past 24 years. Currently, I am assigned to 7th grade. In the past 3 years, I have been fortunate to work with several organizations creating curriculum resources. This has been rewarding for me. I feel I know the standards very well, and am comfortable giving reviews. I am looking forward to the opportunity to review your resources and incorporate them into my classroom.
