Course Beliefs

1) I believe that everyone has the opportunity to be successful.

2) I believe that respect for oneself and others must always be at the forefront in our lives.

Who am I?

My name is Bethany Davis, I am a Colorado native. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelors in English with emphasis in teaching. I earned my Master’s Degree from GCU in Secondary Reading. I became a teacher because I have always had a strong connection to school and I want to make your student’s journey here a pleasant and successful one. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. We enjoy camping, boating and going to the racetrack. Some of my favorite things include; coffee, reading, Harry Potter, playing games, playing sports, and watching Colorado professional sports. Go Avalanche!
