Bethany has worked in children’s ministry since she was old enough to start helping out in children’s church as a young teen. She has a God-given passion for children and teaching and has not only used it in the church for years, but was formerly an ESL elementary school teacher in Worcester Public Schools. She graduated from Fitchburg State University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and is also licensed in ESL. Bethany followed God’s call to leave the public school system in 2014 in order to devote her time to Hope Chapel’s children’s ministry and more time to her own 2 children. Bethany is married to Randy Dattolo and they have 3 kids, Abby, Noah, and Emmalyn. Having been on a few international missions trips as a teenager and studying abroad in college, Bethany still enjoys traveling and planning trips for her family. She also loves to cook, craft, read, and teach preschool at home to her daughter.
