All About Mrs. Beckham

I lived in Flora with my parents and brother.  My parents were both teachers and I knew from watching them that was what I wanted to be when I grew up!  My brother decided to enter a completely different field and is now a CPA.  I attended Eastern Illinois University where I graduated with my teaching certificate.  I then meet my husband Chad and we built a house in Mt. Vernon.  My husband is a fourth grade teacher at Rome School.  We have three children, Jaycie who is attending 5th Grade at Rome, Liam, who is in 2nd grade, and Hudsyn who is 3 and is in the Pre-K class at Raccoon School. 

I have been teaching at Raccoon School for 14 years.  I started my teaching career 2 hours before open house in 2nd Grade!  Since then I  have taught 5th grade, 6th grade, 2nd grade for many years, and I am now teaching 1st grade.  

Some of my hobbies include.....

  • spending time with my family
  • reading books
  • shopping
  • being outside
  • traveling
  • attending, coaching, and playing in various sporting events
