All About Me

Welcome to my website!


My name is Jessica Martin and I am the Career and College Ready Coordinator for the Penns Valley Area School District. As the Career and College Ready Coordinator, it is my goal to have every student graduate PV with a career plan. Here at PV we want students to "get their feet wet" before they decide on a career path. I will help students figure out their future career goals and provide them with internships, job shadowing opportunities, and career trips as they arise. 


For eighteen years I have been employeed as either a teacher or career coordinator. I started my teaching career as the Horticulture and Landscaping instructor at the Central Pa Institute of Science and Technology (CPI). Seven years later I was hired by PV as a science teacher and taught 7th grade science and biology. In 2018, I left the classroom and transitioned into my current role as the Career Coordinator. My formal education has been obtained at the Pennsylvania State University where I have earned a Masters of Science degree in Secondary School Counseling and two Bachelor of Science degrees. My Bachelor of Science degrees are in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences and Agriculture and Extension Education with a minor in Forest Science. I have also obtained my National Counseling Certification.  


My family and I live in Penns Valley and I believe that Penns Valley is the most beautiful place on Earth! I enjoy early morning runs with my friends, spending time with my family, and any activity that is outside. 


If you would like to learn more about the internship and job shadowing opportunities for our students please contact me. My contact information is listed below. 


Enjoy the Sun!
