She has been teaching since her college graduation in 1994. In those years, she has taught at Breck School, St. Paul Academy, Summit School, and in the Mounds View School District.

Her son Tyler (24) is a master scenic carpenter who builds sets at theaters around the Twin Cities. He is currently building the set for Once Upon a Mattress at Old Log Theater! Her daughter Lindsey (21) is a senior at St. Thomas University. She is majoring in Elementary Education. When Betsey is at home, you can find her curled up in a cozy chair with a cup of coffee reading stacks of non-fiction books. She and her husband also enjoy heading to the North Shore as often as possible for Lake Superior adventures. She looks forward to getting to knnow the school community and feels so blessed to be a part of St. John’s!
