Mrs. Bethany Bland
Hi there! Here is some information so you can get to know the "real" Mrs. Bland! I guess I always knew that I would be a teacher. My mom, dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins are all teachers. I grew up in Arlington, TX, which is between Dallas and Ft. Worth. My senior year of high school we moved to Conroe, TX, north of Houston and I graduated from Conroe High School. Then I attended Baylor University (Sic 'Em Bears!) where I was a member of Chi Omega. This is currently my 25th year of teaching, all of which has been at Sienna Crossing! I began my career at SCE teaching 1st grade, then moved to 3rd grade and now I am the Art Teacher. I was honored to be named the Sienna Crossing Teacher of the Year in both 2006 and 2023! Sienna Crossing is an awesome school with incredible students and an awesome staff!
I met my husband, Jonathan, at Baylor and we married on January 9, 1999. I have 3 wonderful kids: Brayden, Bryleigh and Brittyn. We recently added a kitten to our family and her name is Hazel.
Some of my hobbies include: shopping, skiing, dancing, watching baseball, laughing, going out to eat, spending time with my family, planning parties, cruising, hanging out with my friends, making crafts, collecting purses, and watching TV and movies! I also love Mickey Mouse and N’Sync (I know, I know---who is N'Sync??? Come see the posters in my room!! One day I'm hoping for a N'Sync reunion--hey, if NKOTB can do it, there's hope!)
Teaching is such a rewarding and fantastic experience--especially when you get to teach the awesome Navigators at Sienna Crossing! What other job do you get to laugh, dance, sing, watch minds expand, wear your pj's, have recess, get tons of hugs a day and get paid to do it????
Here’s a neat quote that I like to think about when I’m teaching and when kids are learning:
“You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.” --Rosalynn Carter
