I am in my first year of teaching at Bethlehem, however, I am a 21 year veteran of Kindergarten in a former local Christian school.  My undergraduate and graduate work were done at Wright State University in the field of early childhood education.   I feel blessed to counted as staff of Bethlehem Lutheran School. 

I am wife to Tim, mother to Kate (13) and Preston (24) and grandmother to Liana (2). In my spare time my family know they will find me at home with my nose buried in a historical book.  I attend Faith Baptist Church in Beavercreek and lend my help in the children’s classes and choir.  

My life verse is Nahum 1:7, “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble and He knows those who take refuge in Him.”      Kim Thatcher, Teacher
