Unqualified teachers who are only interested in the money. Deceitful and full of drama. Children are not learning at this school. So much chaos and diorganization. Teacher was constantly on her phone or posting pictures of our children on social media without our permission. No structure. Public school is way better in my opinion. When the teacher bullies the children it's time to leave the gossip, drama, lack of teaching and bizarre behavior behind. I made a huge mistake believing in the woman running this school. When I discovered some of her personality flaws I was shocked!

I totally agree on the previous review. This teacher lets a child bully all the other children. Just ask this teacher how many kids are still there from the beginning of the school year. She talks about what the high school teacher did wrong but covers what she is doing. She is not a truthful teacher. Lies to all parents. Like I always say what is done in the dark will come out in the light.

If any parent knew the squalor in which she lives they would NEVER consider her as someone they could entrust their children with. She is negligent in every aspect of her personal life. Creates and brings drama to the school. Gossips about EVERYONE. She simply couldn't get a job anywhere else so had no choice but to open this joke of a school. .. stole students from her previous school by lying about her qualifications and posing as a victim. If you want your child to learn how to bully, lie, learn nothing but crafty crap and create drama, then by all means send them to this poor excuse for a school.

Agree. Ms. Martin fors act like a victim about everything. She will asked patents to drive and not even ask for a cooy of their insurance or D.L. Most likely so parents don't ask about her insurance or why she never drives her car. But this all came out when the cops took her car due to ticket and not being I'm registered to DMV since 2011. She had no insurance on top of it. At this time she only has one child left that she has started with. All parents pulled their kids due to she lets our kids to be harassed by a child. The same child who does this to all children. She tells parents she is handling this. Why is it happening all year. This child is never in trouble. She is a bad teacher.

Also Ms. Martin tells parents about other parents personal business. She has said bad things about parents and their children if they pull their kids. Has said things about children's medical problems, things that are in the child's personal school file. This is igeal.
She also uses the school bank account for personal shopping. From the beginning of school she has said all fundraisers are for the end of the year field trip to Great America. This trip never happened and we did raise enough to pay for all children. Teacher decided to go to a pubic pool. We our children wanted to leave.
She ran the other teacher off because she started to question things that were not making sense. Tell parents she wishes she would just quit. And then bad mouth the other teacher when she left. Very sad. Make sure this is the kind of school you would put your kids in. I wish I knew.

She used to brag that her brother was a policeman in the bay area and could get her off any tickets she might receive. I saw the way she lived in her apt. paid a deposit for 1 cat, had 4 or 5 and a rabbit and a zillion fleas. I know people who tried to help her but became disgusted when she kept making herself out to be a victim. Claimed she was in "hiding" from her ex because he was abusive, but was seen and even bragged about spending time with him. I feel sorry for the one parent who has her child still there. Obviously, they have no clue where else to put their child.
Ms. Martin is a silly boy crazy teenager trapped in an adult's body. She needs to be evaluated for her own mental stability, but sure as heck shouldn't be supervising children. Her idea of discipline is to screech at the kids until she is the loudest. No wonder the ones with issues don't get better. Screaming louder only encourages more of the same.

One other thing, on her out of control spending. She would go buy stuff then return it because she has a "shopping addiction". I'm not surprised she's using money for the school for her own personal spending. She has no parameters, like a teenager who stole from her mother's purse, she is out of control. When we used to go on field trips at the other school, she would get money for parking from the administrator, and never gave it to the parents. She also kept the kids money that was entrusted to her for each child's individual spending. She was always late with her rent on her apt. but the worst thing EVER... when I went by her place one time, it was obvious where she lived. You could SMELL the cat urine and feces in the parking lot. Not sure about anyone else, but I really don't need a 12 year old or someone who acts like one, trying to teach my kid. Even public school at its worst is better than SACRAMENTO LEARNING TREE ACADEMY!!!!

Wow!! I never went to her house or went out with her. Thou her classroom would smell like animal pee if she did not leave the classroom door open. Her bunny cage was always dirty. The bunny runs around the classroom peeing everywhere. It could be hot or cold it still would be open. As I personally seen that she would become friends with one parent and bad mouth others and then befriend another and do the same. She would talk about this one parent who had a son with a illness who could not come to school much really bad. Would tell all the parents there was no kind of illness and one of the parents even said that she took pictures with her personal cell phone of that child's medical form showing any illness he had. She said it did not show what that parent said the child had.
Maybe this teacher can read all these reviews and learn something about herself. A little crazy that parents and staff from her last school caused her problems and now the parents from this year. Obviously the problem is her!! I'm done saying things, I hope I could help and parents who was looking to put their kid there that now they don't have to be put through what we all went through.

Sorry PO....I know you must be frustrated
.. We all believed in the new school... But I have to say..I was pretty embarrassed the way everyone treated the owners of the other school... And knowing the way Mrs Woody was treated is almost as bad. I wish everyone would just leave the school and quit funding Ms. Martin's bad habits . Her deceit and stealing from the kids' fundraisers should be prosecuted... That is EMBEZZLEMENT!!! Possibly even a felony...
I knew she was a flake... But didn't realize she is a criminal!!!

Yes...I know the child you speak of... And everyone suspected for a long time that the so called illnesses were just manifestations of his mother's need for attention. She and Ms Martin were best friends for a while. She gave the boy numerous awards through the year even though he was never there. Totally discounted the whole awards process. The mother created as much drama as the teacher... The two together were toxic. The back biting and gossip about other parents was unforgivable and NOBODY was immune... Turn to walk away... instant target on your back. So happy to be done with it all!!!
Best of luck wherever you take your child... And thank you for confirming everything.

Wow. I have read other reviews on this woman running Sacramento Learning Tree Academy and wouldn't be surprised if she got hauled away in cuffs for embezzling from her students. How can ANYONE still believe in this person? I sure wouldn't put a kid in a school that has such a poor rating.
Thank you for the reviews and input. I will not only shy away from this place, but AVOID IT ALL TOGETHER!!!

Ms. Martin did do alot of fundraisers and would tell us in two different ones that we all raised over 300.00 on both. This did not count all the plates we bought and all the silent auctions. Maybe we all should figure out where this money went. Do to we all put up 250.00 for activity fee. We did not use much of that either. Huh...... Now that I'm thinking about it what about the monthly print out on the funds we pay monthly for our children. Not one month did we get anything. Where does she think this is any kind of upstanding job she does. I know I have caught this women in lies. Thanks for posting.

She was never trustworthy... would always keep the kids' money from field trips at the other school. She has many issues, but I believe she needs to be shut down. How many more children does she have to steal from, both academically and monetarily? Did your kids learn anything last year? If so, it wasn't due to her guidance.(Crafts are not considered academics!) I would consider public school before subjecting my child to another moment of her bullying my child, gossiping in front of the children and I have even heard her make disparaging remarks to a child about their own parent. That is no way to teach, unless you want the kids to grow up to be as despicable as she is. She needs to be reported to the authorities ASAP!! Before she can suck more innocent parents and children into her deceitful web.

One more thing. Have you seen all the other negative posts about Ms. Martin and her school? Every place you look when you search Sacramento Learning Tree Academy, you will see nothing but negative reviews. She even has a Ripoff report. If every parent who feels as though they have been cheated, posted comments about her there, it would be one of the first things that pops up if some parent was considering placing their child with her. Hopefully the word is out but I wouldn't wish her on another child ever!!

After reading all the other reviews i decided to post one myself. I have caught Ms. Martin in a few lies. Lets start with the one she lied to a few parents and children as well.
The yearbooks.. This was crazy. So I have asked her for months about the yearbooks. She said her and a couple of high school kids were going to make them. This was in April. But the forms never came out to order one. So I bring it up to her again two weeks before school is out. She said she would have to start them over do to she had started them on a coworkers computer. So I tell her that I would call and ask her for the information on the computer. Ms. Martin got very nervous and said no need to do that because she had just finished them up and was making the order form right then. We never got our year until this week. Funny thing is I had talk to the other teacher and that was a lie. And another parent asked her about these a few months ago and she told her she has not started them. And the company she went through has them shipped two to three days after ordering them.
So lets start with the lies. She said that she had them ordered to the physical address. But she had told the kids and parents she had to go to the post office to check her p.o. box. This was the last week of school. Then it would take seven to ten days to get them from the company. She should read the website the yearbooks came from to see if the estimate shipping time would take. Because I followed up on that as well.
Many many lies....
