Ms. Bethany LloydFrom the time I was a small child, I knew that someday I wanted to be a teacher! Originally from California, I have lived in several different states throughout my life which has provided me insights and perspectives from different parts of the world. I enjoy sharing my love of learning with my students each year. James Walker Elementary is definitely a great place for children to learn and grow.
Passions include: Family, Disney, and Teaching
I have a passion for my family. My husband and I met in high school, and we have three fabulous children who are now grown and have started careers and families of their own. We love family get-togethers, and traveling to new places.
I have a passion for all things Disney! In fact, my family was featured on The Travel Channel in 2004 on a show called “Fans Guide to Walt Disney World.” We love keeping up on the newest and latest at the Disney Theme Parks and look forward to Disney vacations.
I have a passion for the profession of teaching. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Park University and I received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Central Missouri. This is my 24th year as an educator! When school is not in session, I continue my passion by teaching summer school, and I am always searching for new perspectives and resources to share with my students about the world around us.
I am fortunate to work with children every day of my life. I believe the quote from Confucius who stated, "Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life."
