VP of Fundraising Cochair | Bethany Lamens
Bethany was raised in Bothell and loves being part of the community she grew up in and calls home.
She has three children who will be at Fernwood this year. Ella will be in 6th grade, Lucy in 4rd grade, and
Everett will be in 1st grade.
Bethany has enjoyed being part of the Fernwood Community. This will be her first year on the PTSA
board. She has co-chaired the Fernwood Yearbook Committee the last two years and will be helping out
with the Yearbook Committee this coming year. She enjoys volunteering in her children’s classrooms, as
a Class Art Docent, on Picture Day, and on Popcorn Fridays.
She is a former elementary teacher and will put that teaching background to use this year as a substitute
teacher in the Northshore School District. She received her degree in Elementary Education with a
minor in Psychology, and then moved to Las Vegas to teach. While living in Las Vegas she completed
her Masters in Reading. After teaching in Las Vegas for two years, she moved to Issaquah, Wa where
she taught 1st and 2nd grade for eight years. She still keeps in touch with many of her former students
who are now graduating from college!
She has stayed home the past few years while being kept busy by her three kids. She is looking forward to serving on the board and feels strongly about being involved in her children’s school and education. She is excited to work as the co-chair of Fundraising to make a positive impact on the Fernwood Community.
