Mrs. Tisha Martin



I am Tisha Martin and I couldn’t be happier to be here at Bennett Ranch Elementary.  I am relatively new to the Colorado Springs community, having moved here just under a year ago with my husband of 26 years, Curtis, my son, Evan (21) and our dogs, Huxley, Rosie and Cassius.


I have been in education for 14 years, all of them at Sierra Vista Elementary in Pueblo West.  The first 9 years were spent as the school librarian, where my passion for children’s literature and literacy grew.  My first year in the classroom was in Kindergarten and I then moved into 1st grade where I’ve been ever since. 


I care deeply for each student that walks through my door. I love these kiddos and work diligently to create independent learners.  These kids can do amazing things when they are given an opportunity to try. I expect all of my kids to try.  If we’re not making mistakes, we’re not growing and learning.


Social Emotional learning is also a priority in my classroom. While kids are incredibly resilient, they must be able to navigate this crazy world we live in with courage and grit.


I earned my master’s degree in Technology and Instruction during last year’s shutdown.  I enjoy being a student as much as I love being a teacher.


When time allows, my family and I love to travel.  We’ve seen a good deal of much of the US, Caribbean, Western Europe, England and Israel.  We can’t wait to get back out there!

Hobbies: Read, walk dogs, travel

Anything is possible when you try.
