Welcome to Mrs. Beatty's Site!

  In the spring of 2002, I graduated from Silver Lake College with bachelor's degree in Elementary Education/Early Childhood /Adaptive Special Education. I have been working in the Manitowoc Public School District since then. Continuing my education is very important to me, so during 2007, I received my master's degree in Educational Technology through Marian University.  Each year I want to further my knowledge, so I continue to take courses or read professional texts in order to continually challenge myself to be the best teacher I can be.  

I can't imagine having another career.  Working with students on a daily basis is incredible.  Each day lends itself to something new.  My students and I are always challenged and we are all constantly learning.  It is my goal as a teacher to encourage children to be life-long learners.  I want my students to be willing to take risks.  I want my students to know making mistakes is part of life; without mistakes we wouldn't learn.  Every mistake is precious and valuable in the learning process.  As a teacher, I would like to see my students encouraging one another to do their best and to collaborate with one another in order to be creative/ critical thinkers.
