Dear editor,

Congratulations to Martha McLeod! Yet another award from the Texas Farm Bureau to our super star teacher, Martha McLeod. I don’t know how many this makes for Martha, but in my opinion you deserve them all and more. For many years I served as the volunteer, operations director at the Aquarium at Rockport Harbor. Martha and her students were frequent field trip visitors and we had the opportunity to interact and watch the relationships between her and the children she accompanied. The kids seemed to adore her, listened attentively and were always inquisitive and well behaved. We looked forward to her class visits. I also spoke to her classes in Fulton and was astounded by the maturity and depth of the questions the kids asked about our marine ecosystem. Martha always prepared them well. If I were young enough to have a child in school, I’d find a way for my daughter/son to be given the privilege of enrolling in one of Martha’s classes. She is one of our Rockport-Fulton gems.
