Welcome to Ms. Beckett's Homepage

Welcome!

Like many of you, this will be my first year at Bert Church but 10th year of teaching. Although Physical Education is my major, English has been my focus and passion for the past 6 years. I grew up in St. Albert (the Airdrie of the north!) and attended the University of Alberta, graduating with two degrees , Physical Education and Education. Coming from a few rural jobs, my last being "up north" in Athabasca, it is exciting to be in Airdrie with the many activites and opportunities that await. The highlight of my career so far has been teaching for a year in Mount Gambier, South Australia, where I met new people, travelled the country and experienced the true Aussie culture.

This year I will be teaching three sections of English 9, and one class of English 10-1. I am excited to be learning and growing with all of you and hope we will have a great year together. Beginning the year with a positive and open mind and continuing that throughout the year will help us all see success.

I have a strong belief in living and learning through your values and understand our values are different and unique. Respecting this within our walls are a top priority and I feel that creating connections are the foundation of a strong education. In my classes, please remember:

 

  1. Believe in yourself.
  2. We rise by lifting others.
  3. Be happy. Be kind. Be you.

 

Remember, if you attend all classes, participate in our activities, debates, and discussions, and complete all assignments, I will GUARANTEE your success in any course I teach.
