Welcome to First Grade! About the Teacher! My name is Cindy Edwards-Martinez and this is my 18th year of teaching. I started my career in Tomball ISD and I really enjoy it. I am married to TJ Martinez and have two wonderful boys named Abel and Noah Edwards and one beautiful daughter named Sophia. We are a Tomball proud family, Abel graduated from Tomball Memorial in 2014 and Noah graduated from Tomball Memorial in 2018. Sophia will begin 2nd grade at Willow Creek this year.  As a family we enjoy cooking out, going to the movies, and swimming. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Sam Houston State University. I live in the Westbourne Subdivision and I think the people in this community are wonderful. When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my family, watching movies (huge STAR WARS fan) and supporting my hometown teams in sports-Go Texans! Go Rockets! and Go Astros!  My mission for the class is to provide a safe and nourishing environment where my students are always encouraged to do their best. The best compliment a teacher can receive is to hear that her students enjoy coming to school. I want my students to want to come to school.
