Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Fales-Clinton

My name is Bethann Fales-Clinton.  I am from Michigan.  I was born in Wayne County.  Most of my childhood was spent growing up in Detroit.  I attended Temple Christian School up until 11th grade.  My family moved to a city called Livonia.  I went to high school at Aldai Stevenson until I graduated in 1988.  There, I decided I wanted to persuit a degree working with children as my interest was sparked by human development classes.  I was very fortunate to be able to work at many high quality preschool programs throughout my high school and college years. 

Alongside my love for children, I also share a deep desire for music and drama.  I play several instruments, sing, and act.  I began working toward a Bachelor Degree in music as I wanted to be a music teacher, but found an outlet that merged my two biggest loves together.  Thus, I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2005 with a degree in early elementary education, integrated creative arts, and elementary education.

I am passionate about my profession.  I love seeing young children cross milestones in their learning and development.  I am a member of the National Accredidation of Early Young Children (NAEYC).  

I joined Marion County Public Schools in 2013.  Currently, I am teaching first grade!
