What No More Mumbo Jumbo Isn’t…

It’s not your typical education book. You know the ones I’m talking about…the thick ones on your desk that you want to read, but never do. It’s not a book to teach you to organize a family literacy night. There are plenty of books that do that. It’s not a book with details about research. Let’s be honest, who really wants to read those?!

What No More Mumbo Jumbo Is...

It’s short, simple, practical, and easy to read. You can get through it in about 3 hours! It’s full of rich examples, easy tips, and quick checklists. You can keep them handy and use them every day. It’s designed to help you quickly become a communications expert! And, help you use words and language to provide families with the skills and knowledge they need to become true partners in their children’s education!

Here’s what folks are saying about No More Mumbo Jumbo…

Some sections taught me a great deal, others reinforced what I have learned through practice and still more wrote down important communication principles that I have explained to aspiring school leaders in discrete comments for years. Now I can simply refer them to your book!

I think this is a wonderful book, a great tool for educators and could revolutionize the whole educator-family relationships.


I sometimes feel like as a lawyer people expect me to use big words and sound all formal. But mostly, my audience is non-lawyers and I forget to reset my style and tone. Thanks for the reminder!

Welcome to Martricia School

Martricia School operates under the paradigm that every child is capable, and every child is a leader. The school’s vision, excellence in developing the whole child, is exemplified in the many collaborations with PTA and the community to bring experiences to teachers and students that enrich the opportunities available. The school’s mission, to collaborate to create leaders, empower learners, and ensure growth, guides our decisions and our direction. Incorporating this mission in all decisions helps develop the essential life skills and characteristics students need in order to thrive in the 21st century. This approach sets the foundation for children with personal leadership and equips students with the self-confidence and skills needed to thrive in school and beyond. Additionally, the school differentiates instruction to meet the needs of all learners. Small group reading instruction is implemented school wide, and the math workshop model is offered in some grades. Students from Marticia will attend Hamilton Heights Middle School for grades six through eight, then move on to Jefferson High School.


Welcome to our Marticia Family!

Thank you for enrolling your child in Martricia School! We are excited to work with you to make sure your child succeeds!

Our goal at Martricia is to nurture and challenge each of our students so they become lifelong learners and strong, confident leaders. At Martricia, we believe that education is a partnership and we know you are an “expert” when it comes to your child. We hope you will share your ideas and expertise with us. We want to hear from you. And, we will reach out often to let you know how your child is doing.

We’d love for you to take part in school events and activities at Martricia like Family Reading Night and PTA. We also encourage you to take advantage of resources at the school. We can work with you to not only meet your child’s needs, but your family’s needs.
