A NEW CHOICE IN EDUCATION
Mrs. Behrens holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and is currently working towards her Master’s in Curriculum/Instruction. She has experience working in different types of schools with different ages since 1990. Mrs. Behrens joined Legacy in 2020.
Legacy is a learning environment that accepts students where they are academically and socially. I continue to get excited each year as I teach in an environment that allows students to be successful.

What is your work experience that relates to children?
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was ten (with my imaginary classroom). I have had experiences in many different types of schools, different ages, and different demographics since 1990. I took a season to raise my three children and then went back to school for Sign Language. I then began working with kindergarten students for three years and now have the privilege to work with kindergarten students again here at Legacy!
What are your interests and hobbies?
Reading, photography, scrapbooking, going on hikes in the mountains, traveling, and spending time with my family.
