Mrs. Jeanette Badertscher
I began teaching in 2002. Prior to teaching I had two other professions. I joined the United States Air Force immediately after high school. I worked with computers at various duty assignments. I lived in Mississippi, Arizona, Germany, and Las Vegas. I met my husband who was also in the U.S.A.F. in Germany where we were married. My two children were born in Germany during our second assignment there. After ten years I chose to leave the Air Force so I could focus on my family. We moved back to Iowa where I am originally from. I completed a degree in Management Information Systems at the University of Iowa. I again worked with computers before realizing I needed a career change. I went back to school to get my teaching license. I completed a Master of Education degree through Appalachian State University and then completed my National Board Certification.
I have been happily married to Jerry for more than 30 years. I have two grown children. Jessica lives in Barcelona, Spain. Zach works with my husband at Granite Counter Connection. I enjoy traveling, hiking, running, cooking, reading, and gardening.
I love teaching and often tell people I'll still be at it even if I'm in a wheelchair in my old age. I am always ready to go back before August arrives.
