Mrs. Martha Baird
I graduated in 1987 from UNT. This is my 32nd year of teaching! I have taught elementary for 13 years, and at the middle school level for 18 (the last 16 years in math). After teaching 6th grade math for 15 of those years, I moved to 7th math in 2018. I have also taught Gifted & Talented for 11 years. I am the sponsor of National Junior Honor Society at LDMS. My family & I have lived in Corinth for 24 years. I taught in Coppell ISD the 1st 13 years before coming to LDISD.
My husband & I have 2 children. Dan & Liz and a daughter-in-law, Jordan & a brand new grand daughter! All the adults went to & graduated from LDHS. Scott, Class of '75 is a retired firefighter. We operate a dental assitant class in conjunction with UNT's PDI school & Community Partner Baird Family Dental. Dan (LDHS, Class of '08, and Texas A&M class of '12), is a firefighter/paramedic with the City of Coppell, his wife Jordan (LDHS class of '10, and Texas A&M class of '14) works for Southwest Airlines, and Liz (LDHS class of '12 & UNT '18) UNT is currently working on her Master Degree after a year working with Chick-Fil-A as an assistant director locally. She well as works as a make up artist for weddings & other special events. I love teaching 7th grade because it's relavent to all life's responsiblilities and this a great age to impact students with positive memories of school at a time when life can be a bit awkward.
