The Bettler Buzz

March 21-25, 2016

This Wednesday. March 23, is a BIG DAY!!

It is Class picture day!! We will be taking pictures at 9:30. Please make sure your child doesn't have any appointments scheduled for that time. We would hate to have friends missing in our class picture!

It is also our Book Fair Buying day! We will go shopping at book fair right after lunch. If you can, please make sure that your child brings their wish list to school with them that day. That will make the buying process MUCH easier. Thank you!

About Ms. Bettler

This is my second year at Gwin Oaks - and I LOVE it here! I am so greatful to be part of such a wonderful community.

My family means the world to me. We are all very close. We love going to Disney World - my brother and I are huge roller coaster junkies and nostalgic 20-somethings. We also love playing with our bichon frise puppy, Sophie. She is such a trouble maker! In June 2016 I'll add on an extension to the family when I marry my fiancee, David!

Music is a very important part of my life. I have been playing piano since I was six years old. I have also been involved in some sort of choir or band since fifth grade.

As a teacher, my goal is to make sure that students know how valuable they are! It's not about if a child is smart, but HOW a child is smart. I strive to help each child see their own potential to make a difference in this world and give them the tools to succeed.
