MEET MRS. ROCHO
Hello! My name is Bethany Rocho and I teach 4th grade at Bailey Lake Elementary School. I want to share with you a little bit about my background and who I am.
I attended Hartland High School and graduated in 1999. I prepared for my teaching career by attending Michigan State University. GO GREEN! I earned a Masters degree (from MSU) in August 2007, with an intense focus on Curriculum and Teaching. This is my eighth year teaching and I am proud to be working at Bailey Lake Elementary. I have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful students and a truly dedicated staff.
I have always wanted to be a teacher since I can remember last. I love working with children! I believe I am making a contribution to the future every day.
My peers often call me outgoing and funny. I am a huge MSU fan, which I am sure your child has already mentioned. My students might add the word demanding. They're right! My goal is to create a safe, welcoming & challenging classroom environment that will have your child looking forward to learning each day we meet.
On June 18, 2010, I got married! Some of you may even know who my husband is... It's Mr. Rocho! He used to teach Health here at BLE, but he now works as a counselor at Sashabaw Middle School. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for. The same week we got married, we bought our first home in downtown Clarkston, right behind The Village Cafe (The smells in our backyard are mouthwatering!). We live so close to friends, work, and good food (haha, we love The Union and Woodshop, and who doesn't love The Bake Shop?!). We have enjoyed every bit of 'downtown' living and enjoy giving back to our community members.
I have two older brothers, Jeff who is married with two daughters (Morgan and Payton) and Bob who is married with one daughter (Haley). My three nieces are very special people in my life. I have a dog that I love very much. Mahaila is a rescue dog who makes me smile everyday!
I enjoy biking, practicing yoga, boating, snowboarding, rollerblading, running, and attending all types of sporting events. More than anything, I like to spend time with my friends and family. Being with my students is a close second!
Here are some pictures that will help you get to know me... ENJOY!
