Welcome to Reading Resource
Hi! My name is Connie Beene. I am so excited to be your teacher this year. We are going to have a fun-filled year with lots of learning and great adventures. I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know all about you, but first I'm going to tell you a few things about me.
I spent most of my childhood years in Augusta, Georgia where I graduated from Westside High School. I attended the University of Georgia and Augusta College (now Augusta University). I graduated with a BBA in Finance/Economics and a MEd in Early Childhood Education with a Middle School add-on for Mathematics and Social Sciences.
I have filled many positions in the education field, including substitute teacher, paraprofessional, and parent volunteer. I have previously taught at Augusta Preparatory Day School (Preschool and Computer Science) and Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School (Pre-Algebra and Algebra I). My love has always been elementary education, especially the second and third grade years. That is how I found my way to TES. I have been working in education for more than 30 years. This will be my 15th year in McDuffie County!
This year, I will be a Reading Resource (EIP) teacher in 2nd and 3rd grade. My expectations for all of my students are extremely high. I expect students to come to school ready to learn. In order for learning to take place, we do not have time for behavior problems. Please review classroom rules with your child daily. I want and believe that ALL children can learn, but it takes you and I working as a team.
Conferencing with parents may occur before, after school or during my planning time,TBD am daily. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. You can contact me at (706)986-4700 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with your child and you this school year. Thank you for sharing your child with me.
