My name is Heather Martin and I am one of the Spanish teachers here at McDowell High School. I began teaching here in the fall of 2013 and I teach Spanish 1 and 2. I am from Black Mountain and still currently live there. I graduated from Owen High School in 2009 and got my Bachelor's degree at Appalachian State University in 2013. I happily married to my husband Travis and we have two beautiful children, Harper and Burke. If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to email me at
