Hello! My name is Christy Martens. I am so excited to be part of the SJF family as the Art Specialist! I am coming from Dr. Probe Elementary, where I taught grade 5 and grade 3. This is my 21st year of teaching. Before Dr. Probe, I worked as a Foods Teacher at WCHS and an Art Teacher at W.R. Myers in Taber. I graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Visual Arts and English. I received my Bachelor of Education Degree in 1996 with a major in Art and a Language Arts minor.
I have been married to my husband Bruce for 27 years and we have two awesome boys. Brendan is 25 and Kyle is 21.
When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends. Travelling to visit art galleries and museums is my favourite, but I also love to draw, paint and print-make. I also enjoy watching lacrosse and hockey, I try to golf, and I read, read, read.
I feel so lucky to be a part of this new adventure as a member of the SJF team!
