Eunice Hendrix-Martin

Eunice Hendrix-Martin is a teacher at Carrillo Elementary School in Carlsbad, California. She has been teaching for thirty-one years.

Eunice says that she has always been interested in the developmental stages children go through to become unique individuals, which is why she pursued her degree in child development from San Diego State University. She taught preschool for a number of years and moved to elementary education because there were more professional opportunities available. She received her master's degree in curriculum and instruction from San Diego State University.

Eunice is a master teacher for the University of California at San Diego, a curriculum developer, and a conference presenter and consultant for Math Solutions. She conducts staff inservices and workshops for school districts throughout the state.

She has also been a department editor for the NCTM elementary journal Teaching Children Mathematics.

Eunice says that what keeps her in the classroom are the kids. "Working with children means every day is different. The pure energy that erupts in a classroom of children is positively addicting. Children inspire, amaze, and intrigue me. I love teaching because I can learn about children as they learn about life."
