Hello! My name is Brad Tarr and I am excited to be teaching at Bethke Elementary. I grew up in the Midwest, living in Iowa and Nebraska, and moved to Colorado in 2003 after I obtained my Economics degree from the University of Iowa (Go Hawks!).
During my first few years in Colorado I spent my time working in recreation, attending Metro State University to earn my teaching license, and skiing! I have also spent many summers in Maine working at a summer camp as a camp counselor and director.
Last fall my wife Jenny and I decided that we had had enough of the big city and we started to put the pieces together to move our family to Fort Collins. My daughter will be entering 1st grade at McGraw Elementary and my son will be in Preschool at Arts and Imagination. Along with spending time with my family at parks, playgrounds, swimming and playing, I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, trail running, and anytime spent outside. I am an avid college football fan and reader (when I have the time). I am looking forward to meeting all the Bethke families and settling down in my new home town.
