Mrs. Frances Beermann
Frances Beermann, M. Ed.
Fourth Grade Teacher
Greenbrier Elementary School
My name is Frances Beermann. This is my 13th year teaching at Greenbrier. Before coming to Greenbrier, I had taken some time away from teaching to be with my children while we moved from Kansas City, MO, to Ponca City, OK and finally to Glendale, AZ.
My family and I love Arizona, we have never lived in such a breath taking state. We love it all...the mountains, the desert sunsets, the numerous canyons and yes, even the heat. I enjoy hiking at Thunderbird Park and camping at Sunset Crater outside of Flagstaff. My current form of self care has been riding my bike in the wash area near our home.
We are offically a house divided come this fall. Our son will be a junior at ASU and our daughter will start her freshman year at U of A.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Secondary Education/Social Studies from the University of Wyoming and my Master's degree in Special Education and Elementary Education endorsement from the Arizona State University. Before teaching I worked with adults with disabilities in the residential setting in Laramie Wyoming.
This will be my fourth year working as a 4th grade classroom teacher. I have been working with 4th, 5th and 6th grade since joining Greenbrier Elementary, as a Special Education Teacher. These are unpresidented times and educating our students is essential. I have always felt that my classroom was a 'family' and I care for my family. I know these are not ideal circumstances, but I am still excited for the start of school, just like I am every year and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you.
If you have any questions for me please feel free to call or email. I will be happy to meet with you and answer any questions I can.
