Betsy Hammerberg MA, Director of Religious Education

I attended the UUCGT from the ages of 6-17 and recently began attending again, after a long hiatus, during which I studied elementary education and taught Pre-K through 3rd grade in Thailand, Syria, Vietnam, and Austria. My husband, Kris, and I moved back to Traverse City last year with our two boys, Elliot (2.5 years old) and Oliver (10 months old), to be closer to family. The religious education I received through the UUCGT was fundamental to the development of who I am, and continue to strive to be today. I look forward to supporting the next generation of UU's as they develop their senses of compassion, acceptance, inclusion, peace, curiosity, and respect for all."
