Marilyn Martin is the 2023-2024 Edison Preparatory Middle School Support Professional of the Year!
Marilyn has been part of Team Tulsa since 2008, and she became the health assistant at Edison last year.
"Being in education has always been a part of my life. I worked in Christian schools up to 2008, teaching 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade. I love working with children. I went to the clinic when I was at Wright and loved it," she said.
As health assistant, she keeps track of student medication, tending to various injuries and illnesses, and administering vision and hearing screenings. It's a job she started learning when she was still a high school student.
"I grew up in Tulsa Public Schools, graduating from Webster in 1977. While I was there, I worked in the clinic in the afternoons. I was trained by Dorothy Rhub."
Outside of work, Marilyn enjoys spending time with her family, working with the elderly, going to the movies, and hiking with her friend.
