• Welcome to Martin's Biology & AP Biology Class

    A little about me:

    I am an Augusta native. My wife and I have 4 kids (6, 4, 2 years old with number four coming this November). We enjoy the outdoors and try to spend as much time in nature as possible. Some personal interests of mine are rivers, home improvement projects, plants, hunting, cooking, waterfalls, sports, natural history and technology.

    This will be my 12th year teaching, all of which have been in Richmond County (Westside, ARC and now ARJ). I am excited to begin this year, which is my third at AR Johnson.

    I believe that hard work and high standards are a big part of the learning process and that setting goals is a way to student achievement.

    • Alleluia Community School, 2002 (High School)



    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about your child's progress or needs. It is my experience that the more involved a parent is in this process the better students perform.
