Mrs. Beam

2017 - 2018

Welcome to
Mrs. Beam's Fifth Grade Class Webpage



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

I teach Mrs. Nance and my homeroom students math, science and social studies topics.  This is so lucky for me because those are some of my favorite topics 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 fifteenth year of teaching, and my twelfth 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 begin a Master's degree in Teaching and Leadership with a concentration in STEM at Notre Dame of Maryland University.  Our learning is never completed.  

     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, Dr. Suess 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.
