Constance Martin-Trembley began her love of teaching as a Girl Scout leader in the 1990's where she had two troops ranging in numbers from 36-42 girls. She chose to teach the girls about science and focused on the badges that promoted those topics with the goal of proving to the girls that they were capable of accomplishing them. One of her favorite memories is taking the girls outside to see the comet Hyakutake.
She also taught her own children to look up at the night sky, which was easy to do as she has a husband who shares her passion. She chose to bring this passion into the classroom as a science teacher to inspire other children to look at the world around them and wonder. At the age of 30, she went back to school and achieved a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Wayne State University and 5 years later received a Masters of Education in teaching Education with a focus in Science from Oakland University.
Constance has been a science teacher since 2000 with most of those years spent in middle school and two in the third grade. She was honored in 2007 with the Teacher of the Year award in her district. Constance has since become involved with the Warren Astronomical Society and attends events they sponsor as well as helping her husband Bob Trembley in his outreach programs as a Solar System Ambassador.
