Hi BLPS families! I’m Rachel and I am very excited to be leading the Hippos classroom again this year! Prior to the Hippos, I worked in the Mom's Day Out program at Bethany and had a blast with the one and two year old kiddos! This is my favorite age to teach, as you really get to see them blossom! I’m looking forward to learning, playing, and getting creative again this year! 

When I’m at home, my husband, daughter and I like to spend time together watching movies, cooking, going for walks, and playing games.

Hello Hippo Families! My name is Patricia Paredes, but you can call me Mrs. Patty. I am the new assistant teacher in Mrs. Rachel's class. I’m so excited for this school year where your child and I will embark on a path where they will grow and also learn in the process. I’m also fluent in Spanish.

My Husband and I have two amazing boys, Adrian (15) and Fabian (10). I also have two dogs… Bruce and Emmy, who always keep us busy… which we enjoy very much!

I worked at Bethany Lutheran Preschool for 4 years before the pandemic, and this year I’m so excited to be returning. I love being spending time with kids - my own and yours, too. I’m a very patient person and I also know the importance of knowing about Jesus and what HE does for us. I will keep your child’s best interest in mind and make them feel like a special part of our classroom. See you soon and God bless you!
