Elizabeth Beam

Music & Elementary Spanish Teacher

I graduated from the University of Tulsa, where I studied Elementary Education, Music, and Spanish. I also had the opportunity to sing in the TU Chorale throughout my undergraduate years. After TU, I joined the Magis program through Creighton, a sister program to ACE. I served on the Winnebago Indian Reservation at St. Augustine Indian Mission (also founded by St. Katherine Drexel!), teaching first grade for 2 years. In 2017, I graduated with my Master's Degree in School Leadership and obtained an Administration Certificate. I am in my fourth year of teaching. This is my second year at Holy Family, teaching Music and Elementary Spanish and directing the Youth Choir.

Education is so vital to success in any area of life, and the best education comes from teachers who are passionate about what they do. I am so blessed to work in a Catholic school and share the love of Christ with students each day. The ultimate goal should be not only to educate students in preparation for their futures but also to assist them in attaining the joy that comes with growing in relationship with Christ. My role is to be an advocate for my students; I want to push students to be their best and not settle for mediocrity! I believe that an effective teacher is both firm on discipline and able to not take him/herself too seriously. This guides the engaging and loving culture I strive to create in my classroom.
