About Me

Welcome to my blog! My name is Mrs. Hartman and I will be your child’s 3rd grade teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.  This will be my fifth year teaching 3rd grade at Martic.  Although I am no stranger to the 3rd grade curriculum, I am excited to embark on a new journey and create countless memories with my new students.  I look forward to an exciting year of learning, exploration, and creativity.  Before we begin our school year, let me tell you a little about myself.

As I have mentioned before, this will be my fifth year teaching at Martic, as I am a recent graduate of Millersville University.  I am also currently working towards completing my master’s degree in Instructional Technology at Wilkes University.  While I am not grading papers or planning lessons, I enjoy many outdoor activities, such as hiking, rock climbing, paddleboarding, skiing, traveling, etc…  During the past four school years, I served as a coach for the Girls on the Run team at Martic, and was able to combine my love of outdoor activities with my role as an educator.  I also have a passion for making movies, and I am excited to bring this passion into our 3rd grade classroom this year.

This is my first full year teaching as “Mrs. Hartman”, as I recently got married about halfway through the previous school year.  If your child happens to call me “Miss Trostle”, that’s okay!  We’re one and the same!

In addition to you getting to know me, I am also looking forward to getting to know your child over the course of the school year.  If you would like to know anything else about me, please don’t hesitate to ask!  I look forward to working as a team with you, in order to make this school year the best yet!
