Mrs. Bloemke


My name is Barbara Bloemke and I am a 4th grade teacher.  I’ve been teaching upper elementary students for almost 15 years and I love fourth grade. I’m thrilled to be teaching here at Beckemeyer and am excited to get to know my students and their families! I’m looking forward to building a caring, classroom ohana, and I'm sure, with parent support, we are going to be a great team.

I’m a Coffeen girl who got to spend 25 years living in Hawaii. My husband and I moved to Hillsboro almost a year ago and have been reconnecting with family and friends.
