Ibby Boese, Speech-language Therapist
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 headed to middle school and one going to 10th grade. We get outside to play in the mountains and rivers as much as we can!

Alexa Bradley, Integrated Services Teacher
Hello Bethke Bobcats! This is my 1st year at Bethke and I am so excited to be joining this 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. I cannot wait to learn and grow with all the Bethke Bobcats this year.

Kayla Delaney, Integrated Services Teacher
Hello Bethke Bobcats! This is my 1st year as a Bethke Bobcat, and I am so excited to be joining this family and wonderful community. I can’t wait to start learning together! 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. I can’t wait to get to work with your Bethke Bobcat this school year! It is going to be a great year!
