Springville High School has hired a new science teacher following Coach Umphrey’s transfer to online teaching. The new teacher’s name is Christopher Martin. Prior to being hired at Springville High School, he worked as a Fire Captain with The Birmingham Fire & Rescue for twenty-two years. Six out of those twenty-two years Coach Martin worked as a fire instructor for the City of Birmingham. Coach Martin said, “I chose Springville High School because my son attended school here in Springville and later graduated from Springville High School. I also lived in Argo since 2003. I started coaching SHS baseball and SHS football in 2018.” This is his first-year teaching in a public school. He is currently teaching physical science, biology, and career prep in classroom C143 where he says, ” I’m enjoying teaching here in Springville.”
