One Response to Bethel’s Best Honored With ACE Awards

  • Bethel School District Administrators and co-team members,

    Thank you for honoring our daughter, Gina Clark. Gina started teaching at home after her 1st day in head start around 33 years ago. How you ask? When she got home, she lined up her dolls on the bed after dinner and began teaching them what she learned on her 1st day of school. Soon, we had to find an old school desk and it never stopped. And yes, the wall soon became a white board.

    Again, Thank you all,
    Clark and Iluminada (Lumi) Lynch
