My name is Beverly Batres and I teach a first grade special education class at Crete Elementary. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education in 1985 from Illinois State University and started working for the district in 1987. I taught at Balmoral, CSK and Talala before coming to Crete Elementary. I have experience teaching first grade, second grade, fifth grade and sixth grade special education classes. I love teaching the younger children the most! I find it very rewarding to watch them grow. I believe that childen will be successful in a safe, caring and engaging learning environment.
I am married and have 2 daughters. My oldest daughter recently graduated from college and is teaching at a middle school in Indiana. My youngest daughter is in college. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and reading.
Please let me know if I need to make any changes.
