My name is Jill Martin, I am from Lincoln and attended Lincoln Public Schools from preschool through High School. I went to Nebraska Wesleyan University and received a Bachelor of Music and received a Master of Arts in Special Education from he University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I love to sing, as I was a vocal music major at Wesleyan and have directed two different church choirs. I also love reality TV and am the oldest MTV and VH-1 Junkie! I have had the opportunity to travel all over the world with the NWU Choir, which I was a member of for 5 years. I traveled to Scotland, England, the Czech Republic, Austria, Russia, and Italy. I still love to travel within the US and you will often hear me talk about Las Vegas, NV. I did teach there for one year and visit often. I'm all about a great hotel!!!!!
I have been working in early childhood special education since 1993 and have worked with families in both the home and classroom environment. Most recently, I worked with preschoolers at the University of Nebraska Child Development Lab, programming for children with autism in an inclusive setting. While I have worked with children with all types of disabilities, I do have additional training in working with children with autsim and severe disabilities. I am looking forward to with your family and child this year in preschool.
