What is your favorite thing about Bethel?

There is a tangible sense of joy and caring here at Bethel that I experience with coworkers, faculty, and students. People at Bethel are genuinely interested in each other and work to enhance the community. Plus, the campus is beautiful!

What is your favorite thing about the Twin Cities?

I love the balance of nature and activities. There is a beautiful lake or a park guaranteed to be close by, and there is always something going on whether you're interested in arts, sports, history, or other options.

What did you do before coming to Bethel?

I taught elementary school in U.S. and overseas schools, and I substitute taught in K-12 classrooms. I was a special education paraprofessional in grades K-5 for the past several years.
