Nancy Fairhead

Teacher / Literacy Specialist

BA, B. Ed.


Nancy has been teaching and motivating students for the last 15 years in and around Calgary. As a native Calgarian, Nancy graduated twice from the University of Calgary. Her first degree is a BA in Archaeology. With two archaeological digs under her belt, Nancy went back to school to become a teacher and graduated with her B.Ed. in the Masters of Teaching Program.

Upon graduation Nancy landed a job in the Rockyview School Division at Banded Peak in Bragg Creek where she has been teaching for the last 13 years. Over this time Nancy has taught students across grades 3-8, has coached volleyball, soccer and basketball (despite only being 5’ 3”) and led an extracurricular drama program. Nancy also helped integrate the Galileo Program into Banded Peak’s curriculum and she still strives to incorporate new technology into her lesson plans.

When not teaching Nancy can be found chasing after her own three kids. As both a Hockey and Dance Mom, Nancy also tries to squeeze in workouts and running into her busy schedule. Her happy place is in the mountains on a wake/surf board in the summer and skis in the winter.
