Ms. McCoy

My name is Beth McCoy and I have been teaching at Normal Park since it became a magnet school seventeen years ago. It has been amazing and gratifying seeing the transformation our school has undergone and I feel so lucky to have been apart of it.

 

I taught Kindergarten for five years and this is now my twelfth year teaching first grade. I love first grade and the teachers I get to work with everyday!

 

My goal as a teacher is to provide every student with the opportunity to learn in rich and meaningful ways and I will do whatever necessary to support their academic and personal growth.  I hope my love of children’s books will be transferred to my students.  I want them to develop a life long love of reading.

 

When I am not teaching, I love to travel!  Some of the places I have been that are my favorite are Costa Rica, Hawaii, New York City, Disney World, Savannah, the Pacific Northwest, and Italy.  I always take time to relax with my family in Hilton Head Island during the summer.  I love reading, movies, music, concerts, and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

 

I am really looking forward to meeting my students this year.  Please check out the first grade page to see what amazing, creative, and fun things students will be learning about and doing this year.
