Pinehurst Elementary School Teacher of The Year 2023-2024

Hello! My name is Kirstin Martin and I have been a teacher for 5 years, with 3 of those years being at Pinehurst Elementary. I started my teaching career in North Carolina where I taught 1st grade for 2 years while I was getting my masters degree. Once I finished my masters, I moved to South Carolina and found my home here at Pinehurst in 2nd grade! In my free time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, going to the beach, and hanging out with my friends and my cat, Moku. 


I love working at Pinehurst because I am constantly surrounded by amazing students and teachers who are excited to be here. I love how our school celebrates and highlights all the amazing cultures we have here at our school through fun activities such as our Hispanic Heritage Month Parade and our Black History Month Wax Museum. I am so excited and honored to have been chosen as Pinehurst Elementary’s Teacher of the Year and I look forward to seeing what this year has in store!
