Hello Peyton Families!
My name is Alicia Martin. I currently work at the Junior/Senior High School on state data reporting for
the district and I am sure I have seen many of you when I am assisting in the front office. What you may
not know about me is that I am currently a student at Adam’s State University pursuing my Masters of
Arts in School Counseling. The decision to take this step did not come without significant deliberation. I
feel like this path is where I am supposed to be and I have received the most genuine, amazing support
from my family, students, friends, and the staff here at Peyton.
Starting January, 2024, I will be working with Peyton School District counselors Charine Chase and Jamie
Justice, who have welcomed me with open arms and utmost confidence, to obtain my Practicum and
Internship hours needed for this degree. Upon completion, my hope is to continue to work in Peyton
School District as I have come to have a profound connection with this community. I have been
incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to meet many of your students already as a current
employee and I am ecstatic to work with them in a counseling capacity.
It is important to know that I am aware many of you know me because I have children attending school
in the district and from various athletic and community events. I intend to work with each student in
confidence with integrity and trust as I believe every child is deserving of such. Through this process, I
hope to build that same relationship with each of you. At any point if you have any questions or
concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to working with students and
parents in Peyton schools!
