Mrs. Martha Smith Bond

Welcome to the wonderful world of reading!  My name is Martha Bond and I love teaching at GCMS!  This is my 19th year in the Gulfport School District.  I have a Bachelor's degree from East Carolina University, and a Master's in Education from William Carey University.

I am excited about teaching reading to our students. The ability to read well is one of the most valuable skills a person can acquire.  Our world is a reading world.  It is hard to think of any activity that does not require some reading.

Like most skills we acquire, reading requires practice.  Please encourage your child to read nightly.  To be a better reader, you have to practice!

Students and parents are encouraged to discuss any questions or concerns with me.  Please feel free to drop by and visit my class anytime, or I am available after school for conferences and can be contacted through the main office at (228) 870-1035.
