Ms. Courtney Bettingen

Hi! My Name is Ms. Bettingen, but you can call me Ms. Bett.  I will be the counselor for K-5th. I have worked in several jobs where I have been able to help kids learn and thrive for the last 15 years.  Sometimes, kids have called me a counselor and at other times they have called me a teacher.  This year I am excited to be YOUR counselor. I want you to be happy, have fun, and achieve success in school.
I look forward to meeting you!
