Elementary School

Margaret Betts Grade 2 Teacher

Member of the Saint Columbkille community since 2014

I was drawn to Saint Columbkille by its mission. While academics are rigorous and teachers are challenged to strive for excellence in all areas, we are also encouraged to focus on our students’ spiritual, emotional, and social development. We come to know our students as people with interests and passions, not just test scores. In my spare time, I like to dabble on the ukulele and bake pie. Or try to.
