Christy Perkins

Christy Perkins is the middle school Religion teacher at St. Martha School. She is also the teacher moderator for the Kraeszig Bulldogs Rock Room. Ms. Perkins 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, Ms. Perkins is our Academic Team/Governor’s Cup Coordinator, along with coaching the 7th/8th and the 4th/5th Quick Recall teams.  Although Ms. Perkins 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.

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