Mrs. Bekka Dolloff
Mrs. Bekka Dolloff is entering her second year of teaching Kindergarten at CSW. Prior to joining the CSW staff, Mrs. Dolloff taught preschool and Kindergarten in the Twin Valley School District.
Mrs. Dolloff received her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Tabor College. She began her career in education as a fourth grade teacher. After three years in the classroom, she took a nine-year hiatus to stay home with her children. She returned to the classroom in 2008 when she took a position teaching preschool, and later Kindergarten, at Bennington Grade School. In addition to her teaching duties at Bennington, she assisted the district in writing an early childhood grant.
Mrs. Dolloff and her husband, Tim, have been married for 21 years. The couple has three children — Micah, Brenna and Jordy — who all attend CSW, as well as a 9-year-old Cockapoo named Romo who does not. On Sundays, the family attends Emmaus Mennonite Church; however, Romo remains at home preparing Sunday night game strategy.
Mrs. Dolloff said she is inspired by her relationship with Christ, her family, her friends and gardening, as well as quiet, peaceful summer evenings. In the classroom, she finds joy in seeing her students understand the subject at hand. “I love to bring joy to students and see their “Aha!” moment when they discover new knowledge,” she said.
