Grade One/Two

Welcome to Mrs.Martens' 1/2 class page!! We are a hard working grade 1/2 combined class and we are looking forward to many new experiences and learning opportunites this year. My name is Kathy Martens and this is my  fifth consecutive year teaching grade 1/2 at Banded Peak. Prior to this position I was a kindergarten teacher, a grade 1/2  teacher, a music specialist, K-2 teacher, and a grade four teacher, at various schools in Manitoba and Alberta.

Our classroom supports a philosophy of combining a strong focus on literacy and numeracy with inquiry, project-based learning. Inquiry is often driven by students' individual and combined interests and is consistently aligned with the Alberta Learning Curriculum. When you enter our classroom, you will often see students involved in various hands-on, activity based experiences. It is a busy place full of passionate learners and I look forward to travelling this year's learning journey with all of you!

Yours in Learning,

Kathy Martens

Contact Me

The best way to reach me is through email. It may take a day for me to reply as it is difficult to check emails throughout the day at school. If you need to get a message to me more urgently, phoning the school or using your child's agenda is a great way to communicate as well.
