About Mrs. Beach
Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelors in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education.
My name is Christie Beach and I will be teaching 3rd grade here at GES. This will be my 7th year teaching. I attended Appalachian State University at the Caldwell Campus, where I received my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I was at GES for five years before I became a teacher as an assistant. I have taught at various schools and grade levels through out the county over the past 6 years. I am so glad to be back at what I would call my home school.
I have two Daughters. My oldest daughter has been married for over 5 years to her husband Coty. They now have 2 children. My oldest grandson Harold is going to be 5 years old in September. He comes to school here with me every day. His brother Henry is 2 now and he will be starting day care in August of this year. I love to spend time with them and go on adventures. They tend to help keep me very busy.
I live in Sawmills on family land with many different animals. On our farm we have 2 dogs (Great Dane and a Great Dane Lab mix), lots of cats (7), horses (3), chickens, rabbits (2), and goats (10). We spend a lot of time feeding the animals and working in our garden (except during winter).
I also have family members that I help take care of. So as you can see there is never a dull moment around my home. I am so glad that you will be joining me on a great school year. I can't wait to meet you.
