After completing a distinguished career in the classroom, Martha Singleton continues to impact educators, parents and students with innovative, relevant perspectives in teaching and learning.
During four decades as one of the country’s outstanding journalism teachers, her work received accolades from many prestigious sources, including the University of Texas, who named her one of the “Top Ten Teachers in Texas.” The Dow Jones Newspaper Fund, along with the Wall Street Journal, selected her as one of America’s Distinguished Journalism Advisers. Martha was recognized by the state’s University Interscholastic League, receiving the Edith Fox King Award for her “significant contributions to Texas scholastic journalism.” A past president of Texas Association of Journalism Educators, she has also served on the State of Texas’ textbook selection committee. She has also co-authored four books with her husband, Greg Singleton, on family and parenting topics.
The Singletons live in San Antonio, where she taught journalism at MacArthur High School, and then, until retirement, at Holmes High School. Martha and her husband regularly speak to various school and church groups on family and parenting topics. They were featured speakers at the Texas Education Agency’s Parental Involvement Initiative, sharing their insight in sessions with both parents and educators.
About Multiple Choice:
When it comes to making that crucial choice between public school, private school, or home school, there really is no one pat answer that is always right or always wrong for all families, or for different kids within one family.
Multiple Choice objectively explores the strengths and weaknesses of each, and helps parents match the possibilities with each child’s situation, learning style, needs, and goals. A section called There WILL Be Homework gives parents tips on the active role they will need to play to insure their child’s success in each of the various situations, as well.
Interviews with education professors, and with both parents, teachers, and students who have participated in each venue, combine to make this a practical, easy guide for parents as they make the important choices for their child’s benefit.
