    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.
