Betty Villarreal - 1st & 2nd Grades

Our 1st and 2nd grade classroom is taught by Betty Villarreal, affectionately known as Teacher Betty. She began her teaching career here at TCAS immediately after graduating from Walla Walla University with a BS degree. She continued her learning with a Masters of Education in Reading from Eastern Washington University and later obtained an Early Childhood Endorsement.

She has been teaching in grades K-4 for 25 years and has also spent a year substitute teaching in the Pasco School District. When she has some time to call her own she loves reading, music, hiking, experimental cooking, and any activity to do with her family (two adult sons and husband, Rick). She also enjoys sewing, needlepoint, and quilting!

Teacher Betty loves watching children learn and develop their God-given potential. She also enjoys seeing children succeed as they work together and accomplish their goals.
