Foust Elementary Teacher is GCS Employee of the Month

Danny Martin inspires fellow teacher during summer learning

Greensboro, N.C. – On a hot July afternoon, students at Foust Elementary are working on math problems with teacher Danny Martin. They’ve already completed hours of testing that morning, and it’s almost time for lunch, but they are still engaged and eager to show Mr. Martin what they’ve learned this summer.

That connection with his students has helped him become a leader at Foust, serving as an expanded impact teacher so that more students can benefit from his highly effective teaching skills. Now, he can add Employee of the Month to his list of accomplishments.

Martin was nominated by Falkener Elementary teacher Jangi Hamby, who also taught at Foust during the summer learning sessions. She writes, “He was so dedicated to his peers, students, and the assignment that was “summer learning.” He was a very PRESENT help and team player. His students loved to be in the environment he provided; you could tell by their stellar daily attendance. GCS is full of all-stars and Mr. Martin is definitely one of them.”

As the August GCS employee of the month, Martin received a $50 Visa gift card courtesy of Greensboro Jaycees, which sponsors the Employee of the Month program. His photo will hang at the district’s central offices, at Foust Elementary and at the Greensboro Jaycees office.
