Hi! I am Betty Janssen, musician, mother, pastor’s wife, cancer survivor, and teacher. I have been a teacher for thirty-two years, twelve of those years at Bowie.
I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. I received my B.A. degree in education from Concordia College in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1972. While in college I met my husband, LaVerne Janssen and we have been happily married for thirty-seven years. We have two sons named Darin and Jeremy. Since my sons were so involved in sports, I have become an avid sports fan. My favorite football team is the Green Bay Packers and my favorite baseball team is the St.Louis Cardinals. I love to shop at consignment stores and garage sales. Nothing thrills me more than finding a great deal and putting it together and receiving loads of compliments. I love my church, Our Savior Lutheran, where my husband is the pastor. I direct the handbells, adult choir, and lead the children in singing during the Sunday School opening. I love to travel. I have been to Europe, Greece, Egypt, and the Holy Land. I am having the time of my life getting acquainted with my Kindergarten class. I am so proud of them. My philosophy in life is that with God all things are possible.
