Katy Martin's Bio
3rd Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Katy Martin, and I am so excited to teach third grade at Advantage Arts Academy! I recently graduated from Utah Valley University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, where I had the opportunities to teach in 5th, 3rd, and 1st grade. Ever since I was a little kid I knew I wanted to become a teacher, so this is really a dream come true!
I grew up in Murray, Utah, where I was constantly involved in art and music. I fell in love with piano when I began lessons in third grade, and continued my passion for music as I taught myself how to play guitar, ukulele, and mandolin. When I was in high school I spent most of my time singing in choir. Now, I am the lead singer in a local pop band called 9th East and I absolutely love it! We’ve had so much fun writing and producing our original music, as well as performing all around Utah County. When I’m not making music, you can find me painting, drawing, and making all forms of art!
I can’t wait to meet my third graders and incorporate my love for the arts into our classroom. Get ready for a year of learning and growing!
