Hello My Name Is...
Mrs. Kathy Bechtel
" My mission as a teacher is to help my students realize that through learning, they can enhance their life in a positive way. I want to help all my students believe in themselves and through that belief, take on the challenges of life and go forward."
I graduated with a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, then continued my education for a Master's degree in Early Childhood from Samford University.I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades. Early on I realized teaching was what I was called to do. I enjoy watching children learn new things about the world around them and the excitement they exude when telling others what they have learned.
I have been married for 39 years to my husband Dave and we have two girls Jennifer (Dwayne) and Melissa. I am also the proud grandmother of Amanda Grace (8) and Dane (3).
When I'm not teaching I love working out in my yard, hiking, and spending time with my grandchildren. I enjoy Auburn sports and watching the Atlanta Braves play.
