Biography

Picture of Ms BeesleyHello Westwood and welcome to my staff page!  I have been a teacher for 15 years (WHAT!?!?) and of those 15 years, 6 have been spent at Westwood. I am very proud to be a Warrior!  Currently I am a member of one of the freshmen success teams, The AVID Scholars. In addition to teaching the Avid elective I am also the Algebra and Honors Geometry teacher for my team.m I earned my M. Ed in secondary mathematics instruction from from Arizona State University and my B.S. in Computer Science from Michigan State University (go Spartans!).  Before becoming a teacher I spent approximately 5 years working for a software company that designed tax software for tax professionals and still have a lot of passion for coding and computing projects.

I especially enjoy working with students who struggle with math and  as a teacher I work hard to make math less anxiety provoking.  I have experience teaching students from grades 7-12 and have also taught an introductory class at the community college level.    While not teaching I enjoy spending time with my Arabian horse (who is 26 years old), cooking vegan food, making homemade soap, and storm chasing in the great plains.
