First Grade Teacher

April Rottinghaus Bio

Hello, Families!

I’m so excited to be a Bennett Bear! I have been in education since 2010 teaching first and fourth grade. I can’t think of a better profession to be in!

I’m originally from Kansas, but have resided in McKinney the last eight years with my husband, Tyler and our daughter, Brynlee. In our free time, we love to travel, watch sports, and enjoy the outdoors.

I graduated from Kansas State University. Go Cats! I also received my Masters in Education from Webster University and a school counseling certification last year.

I look forward to working with you this year and helping your fourth grader grow in all areas!
