Meet the Team
My name is Sarah Martin, I'm a follower of Jesus and a thankful wife and homeschooling momma. I was born and raised in Mexico until I met my godly husband and moved to his country (United States). I have always had a love for teaching kids. I have taught Bible, music, dance, English and math in Mexico and India, and I now homeschool in the US. Spanish has always been one of my favorite subjects. I have won contests for grammar, poetry recitals and children's story writing. I went to college in Mexico for graphic design and worked as a designer and translator for many years. CMSS combines my passion for teaching kids and my love for the Spanish language, graphic design, translations and the Charlotte Mason philosophy.
I met Carrie Naglak and Megan Fitzpatrick through this curriculum. And I'm SO thankful for them! We are all bilingual and complement each other perfectly for this exciting curriculum journey.
Carrie Naglak loves Jesus, her family, books, cooking and curriculum! She was homeschooled growing up on the mission field in Mexico City, taught public school in Idaho and now homeschools her own kids in Missouri. She has a B.S. in Elementary Education and M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction and has written math and science curriculum at the district and state level. Carrie loves finding resources to make learning fun and engaging while mapping curriculum to make it cohesive and coherent. She’s very excited to join CM Simple Spanish to bring Spanish language-learning to more families!
Megan Fitzpatrick is a homeschooling mom of three (ages 2, 3, and 5) who loves the Lord, her family, and teaching Spanish! Megan learned Spanish in school and by living in Spain and traveling in Latin America; and she studied education and second language acquisition at Chapman University and Cal State University, Fullerton. Though her children are still very young, she has been homeschooling since 2010! In a circumstance that can only be attributed to God’s good providence, Megan was first hired to teach Spanish to a homeschooling family in her neighborhood in Orange County, CA. This connection eventually led dozens of homeschooling families around Los Angeles and Orange Counties to come to Megan for Spanish instruction. Spending week after week, year after year in homes and co-ops with these beautiful families led Megan to fall in love with homeschooling and sold her on homeschooling her children long before she even had offspring of her own! Again, in a circumstance that only attests to God’s omnipotence, Megan has connected with Sarah Martin and is honored to contribute to the Charlotte Mason Simple Spanish products.
