Grace Marie was born in Oconomowoc on October 1, 1976, daughter of John and Gail (Behrens) Roberts.
Grace was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and obtained a Master of Arts in Education Degree from Marian College in 2005. Additionally, she was licensed to work with Alternative Education programs. She began her teaching career in 1999 working with the Dodgeland Agriculture and FFA programs. In 2006, she also began teaching at the Hustisford High School teaching Agriculture & FFA. Graces professional work earned her statewide recognition. The Outstanding Agriculture Teacher award was bestowed upon her for the 2002-2003 school year. Likewise, she earned the 2005-2006 Wisconsin outstanding Young Agriculture Teacher award.

It is undoubtedly Grace’s passion for working with students that will serve as her legacy. Students remember her willingness to work hard to ensure their success in school and in life. Grace annually organized petting zoos, she mentored students in the summer to ensure that their best projects made it to the county and state fairs, and served as an advisor for many high school events, such as prom, homecoming and graduation. A tireless leader, her colleagues will remember the joy that she brought to any activity for which she was responsible. As a teacher for 15 years, Grace touched the lives of so many students and staff.
