Hello! My name is Christy Martens.
Hello! My name is Christy Martens and I am so excited to be part of the SJF family as the Art Specialist! This is my 24th year of teaching. Before Fairbairn, I taught at Dr. Probe Elementary for 19 years. I've also been 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 almost 30 years and we have two awesome boys, Brendan and Kyle, and daughters-in-law, Natalie and Sara. When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends. Travelling to visit art galleries and museums is my favourite, and I love to draw and paint. I also enjoy watching lacrosse and hockey, I try to golf, and I read, read, read.
Senator Joyce Fairbairn is an amazing place to teach and learn. I am so proud to be a Falcon!
