Welcome to Canyon Springs Fifth Grade!
What makes teaching so great:
I am Karen Beeman, and I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Canyon Springs again this year. I am a very passionate and energetic teacher. I have always enjoyed teaching mathematics, so I am so excited to be teaching math in the fifth grade again this year. One of the things I like best about teaching is expecting the unexpected. As a teacher I can plan, organize and schedule, but I also know, no two days will be the same. That is what makes my job so much fun.
Now here is a little about me:
My family and I moved here from Northern California six years ago. We love living in Arizona. One of my favorite pastimes is spending time with my husband, Don, and my four boys, Matthew, Nick, Taylor and Adam. They keep me very busy when I am not teaching. As a family we enjoy going to baseball games, camping, playing games, swimming, traveling and much more. I am also very involved with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Little League with my children. I love living in the community where I teach, because it gives me the opportunity to see my students outside of school enjoying their favorite pastimes.
Some of my favorite things:
I love the colors blue, green, black, white and turquoise. I enjoy eating out with my family. I love shopping at Target, Kohls,and Amazon. I enjoy reading on my Kindle. I love Starbucks' Iced White Mochas and I love country music.
