Hello SJF!

My name is Gene Watson and I’ve been teaching at Senator Joyce Fairbairn Middle School for decades now. This year, I'll  be teaching some Language Arts and Social Studies, mostly at the grade 8 level.

Over the past several years, I've taught an assortment of subjects at various elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Lethbridge. Before moving to Lethbridge, I taught for a year in Melbourne, Australia, which was "sweet as"! Before that, I lived on the ice planet of Hoth, also known as Winnipeg.

In my spare time, I love playing with my two lovely kiddos at home. Basketball is a passion of mine, whether it's coaching, playing, or reffing. However, I'm not a big fan of watching the NBA. If I'm going to watch sports on TV, it's got to be Oilers hockey... LET'S GO OILERS!!!

If you have any questions or comments, please send me an e-mail at
