Ms. Roxanne Beasley

Hello, my name is Roxanne Beasley and I am excited to welcome you and your child to my class this fall!  We have a lot of time to get to know each other over the year; but here is a little background. This year is my 31st year in the district and my 12th year at Waite Park. I began my career at Waite Park as a Reading Specialist/coach, moving on to my current position as a Math Specialist/coach. I have also taught in the Afterschool Program as well as coordinating this program for the past 7 years. Prior to Waite Park, I was fortunate to have taught Kindergarten, Fourth and Fifth grades as well as acting as the District Curriculum Coordinator. In addition, I have coordinated summer sessions for 15+ years, including STEM Academy and taken students to Spelling Bees, Math Competitions and STEM tournaments.

 

I look forward to working with you and your child! My philosophy is that all children can be encouraged to reach their potential given the opportunity and the support of the community.  I have high expectations for the development of a strong sense of integrity, responsibility, teamwork and respect.  We will have fun and learn a lot about ourselves on top of the excitement that learning brings to our lives.
