Having taught students from kindergarten to college, her teaching method leaves an imprint on all students from all walks of life.  She strives to cultivate academic success and community leadership.   From teaching a variety of after school programs in challenging neighborhoods, to creating theatre curriculum for behavioral health, explaining to educators how the classroom transforms into a safe space is one of the BEST parts of her job. Beth adheres to the West African principle of Sankofa and believes one must use the past in order to understand the present and build for a brighter future.
