Christy Perkins

Christy Perkins is a 6th grade homeroom and Religion teacher at St. Martha School. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the University of Louisville, where she graduated with honors, joining the Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society. Her teaching experience began in 1979 and over the years has enjoyed teaching all subjects and grades from 2 year old class to 8th grade.

Besides her teaching responsibilities, she is the coach for the 4th/5th grade Quick Recall team and is involved with the Governor’s Cup Academic teams. Ms. Perkins has also been appointed president-elect for the Academy of Catholic Educators. Although Ms. Perkins thoroughly enjoys her job and working with children, her greatest joy is her family. She has a daughter, Liz, and a son, John, as well as two beautiful granddaughters, Ella and Emmi. In Ms. Perkins’ spare time, she enjoys reading, gardening, and cooking.

"My philosophy is pretty simple; Respect. I expect students to be respectful in all areas and I, in turn, treat them with respect."
