Meet the 3rd Grade Teachers

     My name is Bethany Bombei and this is my 13th year teaching for the Washington Community School District.  I received my degree in education from the University of Iowa in 2004 and my master's degree from Viterbo University in 2010.  
     When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family. My husband (Neil) and I have been married for 8 years. We have a 7 year old daughter named Grace and a 5 year old daughter named Paige. I am looking forward to a great school year!

     Hi! I am Rebecca Collins and this is my first year teaching at Lincoln Elementary. I have previously taught 3rd grade in Perry, Iowa. I went to Iowa State University and graduated with my Elementary Education degree with an endorsement in Reading and Mathematics. I am super excited to be in my hometown and looking forward to working with the students and parents of Lincoln Elementary.

     Hi!  My name is Monique Rausch. I am entering my 9th year of teaching in the Washington Community Schools.  I received my bachelor's degree from Pittsburg State University and my master's degree from Viterbo University.   
     My husband Jason and I have been married 25 years and have 3 children who are all attending college this year. TJ is 23, Ashley is 21 and Cale is 18.  In my spare time I love to read and attend my children's events.  My favorite activity is having a meal in which all of my family members are seated at the same table. I am excited for the school year to start.  There are many great things happening at Lincoln!
