Ibby Boese, Speech-language Therapist
I went to Colorado College and then to graduate school at the University of Texas-Austin. I have been an SLP since 2004 and at Bethke since 2009! I love language, words, and accents. My husband and I have two sons- one in middle school and one going into 11th grade. We get outside to play in the mountains and rivers as much as we can, but we also spend a lot of time at soccer fields and on basketball courts.

Alexa Bradley, Integrated Services Teacher
Hello Bethke Bobcats! This is my 2nd year in the Bethke community! I recently moved back to Fort Collins after living and teaching in the Bay Area for 5 years. I received my master’s degree in Special Education from the University of San Francisco and hope to take more classes in Early Childhood in the future as well. I am a California native but a former CSU Ram and am so happy to be back in this wonderful place! My favorite thing to do is explore new places with my husband (who is also a teacher in the district) and our dog.

Kayla Delaney, Integrated Services Teacher
Hello Bethke Bobcats! This is my 2nd year as a Bethke Bobcat! Prior to Bethke, I taught special education in the Jefferson County School District in Denver. I received my bachelors from the University of Northern Colorado and an endorsement in special education from Regis University. In 2020, I married my husband (Noah) on my parents’ property up the Poudre Canyon. This past year, my husband and I got our first puppy together and she melts our hearts on the daily! I love being with my family, coffee, working out, and adventuring outside.
