My name is Mrs. Beck and I am SO excited to be a part of the Tarrant Elementary School family! More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your First Grade teacher this year! It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for all of us. I want to know ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me…
I am married to a wonderful man, Jason Beck, who is a very hard worker and always makes me laugh! We have TWIN GIRLS, Emily & Sophie, who are 20 months old! I also have a 13 year-old step-daughter who I love dearly and keeps me on my toes! We have a chihuahua Cami, who completes our family.
I attended Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!!) where I received my Bachelor’s Degree and certification in Early Childhood Education. In 2012, I went back to school to get my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education from UAB. What can I say? I love school! I worked at Sylvan Learning Center for over 5 years where I was the Director of Education and Ace It Director in Roebuck and Hoover. As Ace It Director, I managed the after-school tutoring program here at Tarrant Elementary. In March 2014, I was offered a month-long substitute position here and was so excited to accept! I loved everything about this school-from the students to the staff, I knew I had found a new family and home and was thrilled when I was asked to come back as a kindergarten teacher the following year. This is my fourth year here at TES and my first year in First Grade!!
