2018 - 2019

Welcome to
       Welcome to Fifth Grade with          Mrs. Beam



   It is wonderful to be a teacher at Edgemere Elementary School.  I am so glad you came to my page!

I teach all fifth grade students math this year.  This is so lucky for me because that is one of my favorite subjects to teach and learn more about.  As a teacher, I strive to create a meaningful and structured environment with students that will ensure their success.  

This is my sixteenth year of teaching, and my thirteenth year at Edgemere Elementary School.  I earned a Bachelor's degree from Towson University and a Master's degree from Goucher College.  But my learning is not done yet!  I am continuing my studies as I work to earn my Master's degree in Teaching and Leadership with a concentration in STEM at Notre Dame of Maryland University.  Our learning is never complete.  

     I am married and have three sons.  We, as a family, enjoy camping, exploring new places, gardening, and curling up with good books.  My favorite author as a child was Ruth Chew, and I love to read to my children.  Some of my sons' favorite authors are Sandra Boynton, Dav Pilkey and Rick Riordan.  

     My husband is also a teacher.  He teaches mathematics to high schoolers.  I am the daughter of two teachers, and have a sister who teaches as well.  Education is a very important part of my personal and professional life.
