Teacher Bio

 

Martins April 18'.jpg

Greetings!  My name is Rob Martin, and I am excited to be the English as an Additional Language (EAL) teacher at the American International School of Lusaka (AISL). Linking to Thinking is a class blog that I created when I taught Social Studies, Language Arts, and EAL at that American International School Chennai (India). This site is always under revision, as I find resources to best support the students I teach, as well as the teachers and parents I support. 

I am originally from Seneca Falls, New York, a small town in a beautiful part of New York State (U.S.A.) known as the Finger Lakes region (Just because I tell you I am from New York, does not mean I am from New York City!). In American history, my town is famous for being the birthplace of women’s rights in the United States.  My wife, Flor, is a Spanish and EAL teacher, and our daughter, Maya, is in middle school at AISL.

I have a B.A. in History and Communication (Journalism) from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York and a master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)  from the University at Buffalo (SUNY). I am a New York State certified teacher, and I have been an ESL/EAL, Social Studies, Language Arts, and classroom teacher for over 20 years in New York State, Kenya, Thailand, South Korea, Mexico, Kuwait, and India. In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, playing Ultimate Frisbee, hiking, mountain biking, photography, and spending time with my family. 

I am here to help you achieve your best potential. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me, or to email me at: rmartin@aislukaka.org.

Have a fantastic year!
