Mrs. Gutknecht

My name is Mrs. Gutknecht.  I have been teaching since time began - really this is my 38th year, 28 of them at Nazareth. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and Special Education and a Master's Degree from SUNY Geneseo.  I teach Fifth and Sixth Grade Social Studies, Science, and Fifth Grade Religion. The curriculum is very full, and very exciting. We learn everything from ancient history to today, living things to outer space, and a great deal about the Old Testament. Please check this site for homework, notices, and other important information.

I have been married for 32 years, and have two daughters.  My oldest daughter is a special education teacher, and my youngest daughter is a cardiac nurse.  Both of them attended Nazareth from PreK 3 through 12th grade.

I am a vegetarian, and I love to cook and bake.  I work out every morning before school. I love to go kayaking and camping, any I have camped across country twice.  I also love to do pottery.

In the spring of 2017, my husband and I joined members of our church on a Race Convoy going from Ohio to Alabama to study race relations in our country.  I hope to share some of the things that I learned with your children this year.

That summer, I was blessed to go to India with my daughter to volunteer at an elephant sanctuary.  It was amazing, and I have so much to share about that too.

I am looking forward to an exciting year with your children!
