I am grateful for the time I spend with my husband and our two dogs. We love hiking, snowboarding, camping, going to concerts and being outdoors.
There was a time when I thought having a college degree and teaching math was just a dream due to the expense and time. After more than a decade working in the restaurant industry during my late twenties, I decided to try college and was nervous that I would not be successful. Fortunately, starting at Front Range Community College with student loans was the best decision I ever made. It was a challenge to learn how to be a student all over again while working full time to support myself. Helping people learn and do any type of mathematics is my passion. I have now taught various mathematics courses for over a decade. I also enjoy coaching and mentoring other teachers.

CMC is a comprehensive, public, open-access dual-mission institution offering 136 academic programs ranging from specialized certificates to associate and bachelor’s degrees, a wide range of online, non-credit and lifelong learning courses, as well as extensive concurrent enrollment opportunities in close partnership with neighboring school districts.
Over 15,000 students attend CMC annually, and 40% of degree-seeking students earn a certificate or degree every year. The college’s Latinx enrollment has doubled in six years to 28%, making CMC a federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). CMC courses are highly personal and many are highly experiential by design, each with a maximum registration of 25 students.
Colorado Mountain College campuses are located in Aspen, Carbondale, Breckenridge, Dillon, Steamboat Springs, Glenwood Springs, Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, Leadville, Rifle, the Vail Valley, and Salida. Of these locations, three are residential—Spring Valley, Leadville, and Steamboat Springs — and students in Breckenridge have access to college-owned off-campus housing. CMC campuses are close-knit communities, on average serving between 1,000 – 2,000 students.
The majority of the college’s financial support comes from local property taxes, not tuition or state revenues. Consequently, CMC is uniquely positioned to be entrepreneurial, nimble, mission-focused, and responsive to community and workforce needs. The college’s Central Services administrative office, which provides administrative support to all campus locations, is located in historic downtown Glenwood Springs, the town from which CMC originally launched in 1965.

Although her home campus is Summit, she also serves the Edwards and Leadville campuses. Bethany has been a chemistry teacher for 10 years. She grew up in Summit County, CO and after graduating from Summit High school she went on to earn a B.A. in Chemistry from Azusa Pacific University. Bethany worked as a Peer-Led Team Leader where she served as a tutor for General Chemistry students. Moreover, she was on a research team during her junior and senior years working on codon changes in plasmid DNA for the proteins PAH1 and PAH2.
After graduating, Bethany became a chemistry teacher at a school with an international program, where roughly 60% of the students were international from China or South Korea. Working there for 5 years, she developed curriculum for both Chemistry and AP Chemistry and learned how to provide instruction for English Language Learners. In 2017, Bethany and her husband (also a Summit County native), felt called to move back to their hometown where Bethany began working at her alma mater of Summit High School. Her time at Summit High School continued to strengthen her as a teacher as well as develop her inquiry-based curriculum. During this time, she also began working on her masters and graduated in Dec. 2021 with a M.S. in Chemistry Education. She then instructed a CMC CEPA General Chemistry 1111/1112 class at the high school.
"Everything is chemistry”, is a motto of Bethany’s. This is her mindset for all chemistry classes, that chemistry is foundational to all other sciences and the world itself. She likes to remind her students of this and teach in a way that helps students draw connections to the world around them and the other classes they are taking. She believes this is how she can give chemistry life and transform the subject from what is in the textbook to something far more interesting to students.
Since transitioning from adjunct to full time faculty in 2022, Bethany has loved to provide chemistry education that serves as a foundation to all other science classes that a student will be taking while in their program.
Bethany and her husband have two boys and they love spending time pulling their boys in a Burley, on skis in the winter and on a bike in the summer. She also spends summers rowing on Lake Dillon and going camping. Whenever she has free time, Bethany loves to activate her creative side through crafting, sewing, painting, and other designing.
2023 CMC Faculty of the Year, Vail Valley
I love working with students to celebrate their curiosity and cultivate their inner writers and readers. My favorite writers are CAConrad, Ross Gay, Robin Coste Lewis, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Layli Long Solider, Ocean Vuong, Claudia Rankine, Audre Lorde, and Sylvia Plath, among many others.
My husband and I celebrate the chaos our yellow lab and old cat bring into our lives, and look forward to growing our menagerie.
