Hi, I am Mrs. Beuckman and I am SO excited to start the year and work with your child. This is my 9th year teaching. I taught 3rd grade for six years, kindergarten for two years, and this is my first year teaching 2nd grade!! I graduated from Northern Illinois University in 2008 and went back to school in 2012, where I received my Master’s Degree in Reading Instruction from Benedictine University. Teaching has always been a dream of mine and I am very fortunate to be able to share my passion here at Big Hollow. When I am not teaching, I enjoy cooking, listening to music, and spending time with family.
I have a husband named Brian and a son named Jace. Jace is 1 year old and loves to climb, explore new things, and just be silly! He keeps me very busy and I love spending time with him!
Now that you have heard about me, I cannot WAIT to learn all about your kids! I feel a very important part of teaching is knowing your students! I always take extra time to connect with my students and get to know their interests. By connecting with my students, I incorporate their interests into learning and make each day fun!
