Ms. Bethanne Yanchick
I have been teaching with the Pleasant Valley School district since 1998. I became a permanent second grade teacher in the year 2001. I graduated from PV in 1983, but did not attend college until I was 28. I was a class mom when my oldest son was in school at Polk Elementary and enjoyed working with the students. It was at that time I really knew what I wanted to do. Being a teacher is such a rewarding career. I love to see the children gain more confidence in math and reading, be curious, explore, and just have a love learning. I always encourage kindness and stress that we are a family in our classroom. In my everyday life, which I also find awesome and rewarding, I am a mom to three wonderful boys. I love hiking, the beach, cats, and the first snowfall! Of course, I mostly love spending time with my family.
