Ms. Martha Mintner
Welcome to Psychology!
I teach IB Psychology, AP Psychology as well as General Psychology. I am certified in Social Sciences, English, Middle Grades, and ESE. Originally from St. Louis, I have degrees in Psychology and Sociology from Drury University, in Springfield, MO. I am passionate about Psychology and the study of behavior and mental processes. I hope to transfer some of that passion to my students. My husband Michael and I are "empty nesters". I have two children, Emily and Wil. Emily is the Administrative Director of Rehabilitation Services and Behavioral Health for Citrus Memorial Hospital (and a Florida Gator). Wil graduated in 2015 from Lake Weir High School and attended Florida Southern College where he majored in pre-med and was an NCAA Division II swimmer. Wil passed away in 2015 while at college. This tragedy compelled Emily to begin the Wil-Power Foundation which seeks to prevent others from experiencing the same heartbreak our family has experienced. As a result, the foundation carries out the Heads Above Water program for graduating seniors at all Marion county high schools. The Wil-Power Foundation also provides 2 scholarships for college bound Marion county students. Both of these programs are funded by the Caveman Challenge held in Ocala every May. Michael and I enjoy our family, movies, and our 5 Dachshunds; Scooter, Sara, Sadie, Sampson, and Snickers! I look forward to working with you and your family as you begin your discovery of Psychology!
