Mrs. Beth Schweihs
Hello! I am Beth Schweihs and I have been teaching in Velley View School District for 20 years- all in 4th Grade! I started my carreer at Wood View Elementary School and after two years transferred to Independence Elementary School. It has been my home ever since! My husband and I have 4 boys ages 12, 10, 8, and 5. I attended Eastern Illinois University to earn my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I recently earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University. I also have an ESL endorsement. Jason Wayer and I are currently departmentalizing. This means that his students are mine and my students are his! He teaches math, science, and social studies to both of our classes. I teach all of the English/Language Arts to both of our classes. My goal is to help all children develop a love of reading and writing!
