Welcome to Mrs. Wolf, Ms. Beachler and Mrs. Martens' Kindergarten Class
My name is Marilyn Martens and this is my nineth year as a Kindergarten teacher as Shady Side Academy. Prior to moving to Pittsburgh I taught first grade for 6 years at The Park School in Brookline, MA. My husband and I are both Canadian and prior to moving to Boston 15 years ago, I taught 5 years at a public school in London Ontario. I attended the University of Western Ontario where I received an Honors Bachelors of Arts degree. After that I attended the University of Maine and pursued a degree in Elementary Education. I greatly enjoy working with young children and being a part of this exciting time in their development.
Outside of school I keep busy spending time with my husband and 2 young children. We love hiking, biking, cooking, swimming and laughing together# I also love reading and traveling when the opportunity arises!
Please stop by any time to visit our class and witness the exciting learning and wonderful fun taking place!

Hello, my name is Molly Beachler and this is my first year teaching Kindergarten at Shady Side Academy. I grew up in Pittsburgh, in the Mt. Lebanon area. I attended Duquesne University where I graduated with a B.S. in Elementary Education and also a M.S. in Special Education# Prior coming to Shady Side, I was a 1st grade permanent substitute teacher in the Mt. Lebanon School District for 3 years. I also worked in Fairfax Virginia, teaching 2nd grade for 3 years. I am very excited to be working at Shady Side and working with Mrs. Martens! I can't wait to learn and work with each one of your children. I love to teach and see how my students grow and develop throughout the year.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to Pittsburgh sporting events, cooking, and scrapbooking. My family enjoys spending time at our summer home in Deep Creek Maryland. In the fall time, I enjoy going to Steelers and University of Pitt football games. I am very fortunate to have my family live close to me in Pittsburgh.
