Math with Maertz

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year and more importantly, welcome to my 8th grade and 7th grade math class! My name is Lacey Maertz and I'm a 2012 graduate from West High School and a 2015 graduate from Texas A&M University. I also completed my M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction in January of 2023. I'm a teacher, wife, and mother and I look forward to meeting all my students this school year! This is my seventh year being a certified teacher -- I spent four years teaching math at La Vega Junior High before returning home to West. I'm honored to have been welcomed back to West ISD & West Middle School for another school year.
Growing up math was always my strong suit, and I hope to instill a passion for math in my students like my teachers did for me. I'm looking forward to bringing real world and culturally relevant scenarios into my classroom to help my students connect not only with the content being taught but with each other and me.
Go Trojans -- let's rock this school year!

I firmly believe school is a safe place where students can come every day to further their education. It is my mission to provide a safe and fun learning environment where my students feel welcomed every day.
