Mrs. Betsy Derr

Part Time Music Teacher

I am delighted to be teaching music at Bear Creek this year! My schedule includes kindergarten, first, second, third and sixth-grade classes. After teaching elementary music for over 20 years in Illinois, my husband and I moved to Colorado in 2016. I am excited to be part of the education community again and seek to bring some innovative ways of teaching music to your children.
