upcoming school year. The staff and students have been full of warm welcomes and kind words. For the 2013-2014 school year, I will be teaching 3rd grade with a fabulous group of
professionals. My previous teaching experiences include 3rd grade, 1st grade, and Reading. Each experience has made an impact on my professional growth, and I am excited to include Bethke as my newest journey.
I come from a small town in Iowa called Adair, and as you can see, I am a Hawkeye fan. Watching college
football is one of my favorite activities in the fall. Walking my dog Lena, hiking, skiing and reading are my
other hobbies. This summer I hope to read Ender’s Game, Divergent, and 39 Clues (books 2-4). In
addition to that, I will have my classroom website up and running by the start of school. Have a great summer!
