Hello! My name is Ms. Beckett and this is my 11th year of teaching. I taught second grade for 2 years, first grade for 3 years, and this will be my 6th year teaching kindergarten. I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. In December of 2014 I also finished my Master’s Degree from St. Francis University.
I was born and raised in Bolingbrook, IL and grew up attending schools in the Valley View School District. Fun Fact: I am teaching in the same kindergarten classroom that I was in when I was a child. I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach students in the Bolingbrook community. I live in the Bolingbrook area with my boyfriend Dan and our two daughters Electa (5) and Charlee (5 months). When I am not at school I enjoy the company of my friends and family. I also enjoy playing sports, reading, making crafts and just relaxing at home.
As a teacher I want all students to be successful and to enjoy learning new things every day. I strive to meet the individual needs of all of my students no matter their learning style while still challenging them. I look forward to having your son or daughter in my classroom and cannot wait to see what this school year has in store. Welcome to my classroom!
