Hello! My name is Kelly Bettcher and I am delighted to be teaching the curious and fascinating subject of science at Silver Hills Middle School. I received my BA in Biology with an emphasis in Zoology/Parasitology from Metro State College. I have been teaching middle school and high school since 1990. I am a native of Colorado and attended Adams 12 Five Star Schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade. I’m a mom 2 amazing sons, 3 big fur baby dogs and the wife of my wonderful husband. Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and anything that has to do with running, biking, swimming and animals.
