Beth Wille has been a devoted Kindergarten teacher in Aspen for more than 30 years. Her passion for teaching extends far beyond the classroom, and last year raised $22,000 to update Aspen Elementary School’s cross-country ski gear to help foster the love of skiing, snow, and winter, in the kids of Aspen. Beth’s fundraising efforts went to the purchasing of over 150 new boots, skis, and bindings and allowed hundreds of community kids ranging from kindergarten through 4th grade to get on skis and out onto the great Nordic trails that surround our mountain town. It is said by many that Beth has a distinct superpower of building and maintaining relationships that extend into her love for the small children of aspen’s next generation as well as her community.
Lover of rivers and the outdoors; her family, biking, paddle boarding, rafting, baking bread, and of course teaching kindergarten, Beth has lived in Aspen for more than 50 years.
