Hello and welcome! Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Carol Behrens and I am so excited to be teaching second grade! I look forward to working with both you and your child this year.
I am originally from Arizona but have spent several years living in beautiful Northern Idaho as well as on the rolling plains of Nebraska. I received my Bachelor's degree in Outdoor Recreation from Arizona State University and my Master's of Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. I have been a teacher for 13 years, 12 of them at Skyway!
My husband is a Wildland Fire Manager with the Forest Service - we love Smokey the Bear at our house! I have 2 grown sons and a daughter; they all work in the field of natural resources. We have a chocolate lab that eats everything and a golden retriever that couldn’t be more gentle and cute.
I love spending time outdoors with my family. We like to backpack,camp, kayak, and paddle board. During the winter, I like to snowshoe, but enjoy some indoor hobbies like sewing, knitting and reading.
When I sent my own children off to school, it was with the hope that their teachers would really get to know them. I wanted their teachers to know what motivated them, what they cared about, what their strengths and struggles were. I wanted my children's teachers to treat them with compassion and kindness. I promise you that I will do the same for your child.
