Welcome to Mrs. Beitzel's Title 1 webpage.
This is my 4th year in the Punxsy School District, my first at the Middle school, my 11th year as a Title 1 teacher and my 25th year as an elementary teacher! I hail from South Central PA where I taught in the Susquenita School District and Carlisle Area School District. I studied at PSU and got my degree in Elementary Education, I am proud that I got my Master's of Teaching and Curriculum and my Reading Specialist Certification from PSU also! Most recently, I completed course work for certification to teach ELL students, an area of education that I adore!
Being at the middle school gives me the opportunity to spend time with former Longview students and to work with new teachers and readers and writer of 4th and 5th grade!
I have a small family, my son Alex ( a sound engineer), my daughter Sarah ( a 4th grade teacher at CCA) my new son-in Law Brenden who works for Fed-Ex and is a firefighter , my husband Tim (Pastor at Full Gospel AG) and my 4 cats Twitcher, Max, Shermy and Princess. I love to read and I am a huge mystery fan! I love the classics and new authors as well! Laughing and being silly are two of my crazy personality traits and kids know me as "the crazy cat lady!" A title I rather enjoy!
Getting to know the parents of PAMS is one of my goals this year, I hope you will feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, good news or ideas you would like to share!
