“I am forever grateful for all of the colleagues I have been able to share this wonderful profession with over the last three decades,” Martindale said. “I want to specifically thank those in College Station ISD that welcomed me and my family to the community in July of 2007. After 32 years in public education, it is time for me to enter the next stage of my life.”
