Theresa Wasserburger, Teacher for 4-5 Year Olds (MWF and TTH) Class size: 14 kids

I started working at Bethany Busy Bee Early Learning Center in the Spring of 2023.

Two of my grandkids are still attending and one is entering 3rd grade this year.  He still loves this place and loves to come for summer camps and special events. I am very thankful and blessed by the staff and the atmosphere that have lovingly poured into our family.

I am a 2nd generation home educator and love working with children and youth. I started teaching in children’s ministry in 1980 at the age of 18. As a home educator, I had the privilege to teach various classes in homeschool co-ops including Apologia Science, Art, Early Math, Christian Law/Mock Trials, Language Arts, Sing, Spell, Read and Write, etc. I taught preschoolers through high school students in various subjects through the years and tutored children in the Korean community. And I am grateful for our growing community of family and friends at Bethany Busy Bee Preschool! I am so excited for the upcoming school year and what the Lord Jesus has prepared for our journey.

My husband and I raised 3 beautiful girls and we have 5 grandchildren ranging in age 6 months to 17 years old.  My husband is a licensed minister and we love God’s Kingdom!

Joyce Bertram, School Director, Teacher for 4-5 Year Olds (Tuesdays) 

I have been the Director at Bethany Busy Bee since 2001, after serving several years as a substitute and teacher.  I have a Masters Degree in Education and was at the University of Illinois for 13 years as the coordinator training people in the field of disabilities.  We moved to Colorado in 1996 to be near family.  I have been married to Dan since 1984 and we have 3 children, Liz in Seattle with a graduate degree from Mars Hill; Daniel in Washington DC working at the Supreme Court with a degree from the University of Colorado; and, Sam a graduate of Arapahoe High School and at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois.  In addition, my family includes Dan’s two older children who live in the Midwest with their families; and, Bev & Shannon who have lived with us since 1990.  I am involved with Moms in Prayer and at Bethany with Women’s Ministry, the Disability Ministry, and Early Childhood programs.   It is a privilege and delight to be serving you and your children.

Becky Hammer, Teacher for 4-5 Year Olds (MWF) 

My name is Becky Hammer, and this will be my first year working as lead teacher at Bethany Busy Bee in the M/W/F classes, and I am delighted to have your precious child in my class! In 2022, I had the great privilege of working alongside of Mrs. Haun last year as her assistant.

I have been semi-retired for over 5 years previously working in corporate asset management which opened the door to serve many communities throughout the U.S. and worldwide.

I have had the opportunity to share life with mom’s and children walking alongside pointing them to Jesus. Mentoring and discipleship is primary in my life and the lives of my family.

Working at Bethany Busy Bee provides the ability to serve and share the love of Jesus with those I interact with. My desire working with children and their families is to offer a loving, supportive, caring, and a kind environment which enables children to thrive. When parents and caregivers walk through the doors of Bethany Busy Bee, they know it is a genuine place – full of love, joy, patience, kindness, and laughter.
