My name is Mr. Bieker and I am so honored to be your 5th Grade English teacher!
I was born in Dayton, Ohio, but my family is from Kentucky so we moved back here to live when I was 2 years old. I am a native of Rowan County and a graduate from Rowan County Senior High School. After high school, I went on to attend Morehead State University and graduated with a BA Major in Philosophy and a Minor in Traditional Music. I furthered my education at the University of the Cumberlands and received a Masters in Elementary Education. I taught fourth grade students for two years at Rodburn Elementary School and I am excited to begin my new journey of teaching English and Language Arts to fifth grade students at Owingsville Elementary School.
I am married to the Arts and Humanities teacher, Mrs. Kate Bieker. In my free time, I enjoy playing drums at church, having friends over for dinner, and traveling and discovering local pizza restaurants. Recently, I have been learning to play the banjo and can’t wait to implement a few musical instruments into the classroom as a way to engage students in their learning.
I’m really looking forward to meeting with you in person. We will work really hard this year in 5th grade, but we will also have a lot of fun together.
