Counselor/Home School Coordinator - Ms. Betsy Schulthess
I grew up in Connecticut and moved to New Hampshire when I got married. During my early years of living in New Hampshire I worked as a Social Worker in a Nursing Home and a hospital and then went on to work for Seacoast Hospice until my third child was born in 1988. These career experiences and the experience of being a parent helped lead me to the decision to work with children. Therefore, shortly after my daughter was born I started taking part-time graduate classes and graduated from Notre Dame College with a M.Ed in counseling in 1993. I have been employed at East Kingston Elementary School for seven years and feel privileged to come to work everyday as the students, staff, parents, are a pleasure to work with.
I have a daughter in college, a son that will be starting college in September, and a daughter that will be in 9th grade in the Fall. Our home is in Exeter. My leisure activities include painting with pastels and oil paints, spending time outdoors running and biking, and reading.
