My name is Ruth Falkenburg. I grew up in upstate New York and received a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the State University of New York at Potsdam. I have been involved in early childhood education for the past thirty years. I have been at Espree since it opened in 1998 and am presently part of the Pre-Kindergarten team. I enjoy young children's enthusiasm, spontaneity and honesty which bring both joy and challenges to each day. It is very rewarding to be a part of their lives as they mature and develop independence.
I enjoy arts and crafts, cooking, gardening and am a proud grandmother of four.
Hi, my name is Holly Martinez. I was born and raised in Colorado. I graduated from Metropolitan State College of Denver. I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. I have completed numerous classes in early childhood education and am a qualified Early Childhood Education teacher. I joined Espree in 1999 when I began my journey as a teacher assistant. In 2009, I took some time off to finish school and returned to Espree as a teacher in 2012. I am very passionate about teaching young children. My teaching style includes giving each child the best chance for future growth. My teaching methods are based on students' interests, group activities and experiments.
I recently became married to my husband, Chris. In addition to teaching, I enjoy drawing, traveling and spending time with my family.
