Mr. Marc Liese

Departmentalized Instructor


     Mr. Marc Liese began teaching at Bethany in 1982. He graduated for Concordia University, River Forest, IL in 1982 with a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education. Since 1982, Marc has taken additional coursework through Andrews University, Baldwin Wallace University, Oberlin University, Notre Dame University, and Concordia University, Chicago.

     Mr. Liese can frequently be found at the Bethany scorers table during the volleyball and basketball season. Mr. Liese plays the organ for Bethany’s Chapel services and has been a contributing vocalist and organist for several Hymn Sings and organ programs in Cleveland.

Students attend “Outdoor Education Week” or Environmental camp in sixth grade.   In Religion, the students spend time studying Jesus’ teachings as written in the Gospel of Matthew.  English is a combination of work in grammar and writing skills.  The students read and respond to stories from the student anthology in Reading, as well as participate in the Accelerated Reading program.  Bethany is a departmentalized school, and the students visit other teachers for Science/Health, Physical Education, Music, Art, and Spelling.  Math focuses a lot of time and energy with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, decimals, and fractions.  The students also work with geometric principles, and basic data display.  The Social Studies course has the students briefly examining the history and people of North America, South America, Asia, and Europe.
