Math with Maertz

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year and more importantly, welcome to my 8th 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'm a teacher, wife, and mother and I look forward to meeting all my students this school year! This is my fifth year being a certified teacher -- I spent the previous four years teaching math at La Vega Junior High. I'm honored to have been welcomed back to West ISD & West Middle School.
 
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!
