She and her family moved to Paris, France when she was 10 years old where she finished elementary school at Marymount International School.
Ms. Beckel transferred to the Ecole Active Bilingue Jeannine Manuel  for middle school and stayed there until the first year of high school.
Her family relocated back to Chicago, where she had 1 year of high school at New Trier High school, just outside Chicago.
Ms. Beckel transferred schools yet again when her family moved to London, England. She spent 2 years at the  American International School of London.
After completing high school Ms. B moved to NYC, NY where she attended New York University.  She earned her B.A. in Education and Anthropology.  She loved it so much that she stayed for her Masters in Education focusing on Math and Literacy Development.

Hi Families!  Next Friday we will be hosting a fundraiser at Rubio's to raise money for third grade field trips!  You must have the flyer when you order to earmark money that comes back to the school.  We will be passing these out next week.  Please invite friends, family, sports teams, anyone you can think of who likes tacos:)
Let me know if you would like a stack of flyers, otherwise I will send one home each.  You can also print the attached picture.
Thank you for all your support!
