Ms. Jacquelyn M. Betley
¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español! My name is Jacquelyn Betley, but prefer to be called Señorita Betley by students and parents! Although this will be my first year at Camden High School, it will be my 16th year of teaching! Every year is just as exciting as my first because I have new experiences, including success stories with my students! I am a firm believer that in order to succeed you need to FAIL so you can have a First Attempt In Learning. I am originally from Buffalo, New York, where I taught for 5 years. I love my hometown, but needed a change from the weather...TOO MUCH SNOW! I taught for 2 years in North Carolina, before moving to Columbia, South Carolina, where I taught for 8.5 years in Richland 2. When I am not in the classroom I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my son, Andrew, who will be in 3rd grade this year. We enjoy playing with our 4 year old lab husky, Minnie. I also enjoy watching movies, reading, playing board games, gardening, swimming, and relaxing at Hilton Head.
