Mrs. Hartokolis

Mrs. Beth Hartokolis - Grade 4

Welcome to 4th grade!  I am Beth Hartokolis (Heart-O-ko-lis). My passion is to see student's faces light up when they learn something new and/or realize that they CAN do something that used to be difficult.

I grew up in Virginia, Germany and (mostly) Colorado where I attended Regis University.  I have taught  since 1989 in Colorado, Illinois, Iowa and here in Minnesota.  I did take a few years off when my children were little to be a mom.

I have a focus on Literacy through the content areas and have attended a Reading intensive at Teacher's College (Columbia University, NYC), and am in the middle of my Master's in Literacy Education at Hamline University in St. Paul.

I have a Husband, Tim, and 3 Children.  Our son, Nate,  is a graduate of the University of Denver and lives in Denver. Our daughter, Meghan and son-in-law Trevor, are graduates of Concordia College and live in Barrow Alaska. Our youngest daughter, Isabelle, is at Wheaton College in Illinois.
