Mrs. Beal

Hello...This is my twentieth year teaching at Madison Elementary School. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade! Two years prior to my teaching experience at Madison, I taught third and fourth grade in Chicago. In addition, I worked at State Farm for eleven years. I have a real passion for teaching, and I feel blessed to have a career which allows me to work with children!   
My Bachelor's Degree in Education is from Northern Illinois University, my Master's in Curriculum and Development is from Olivet Nazarene University along with my EL endorsement.
Activities that I enjoy doing include Nordic Walking, yoga, aerobics, book club, and spending time with my husband, my eight year old, Jack, and my friends.
