Hi! My name is Kristen Beakey and I’ve been a longtime blogger here at Ladybug’s Teacher Files.
What started as a little blog sharing ideas and resources grew into a larger vision…a goal to save teachers time with shortcuts, quick steps, easy-to-navigate resources, and beautiful teaching solutions!
I started teaching in an EL newcomer 4th grade class. I have spent 18 years in the classroom teaching all grades K-5 (mostly 4th and 5th) comprised of students from all over the world.
In 2020 (right during the height of Covid!) I moved to a new position in my school as a math coach and I have LOVED every moment of this new venture.
I’m now entering my 22nd year of teaching. I work to support students and teachers in grades K-5 through coaching and small group intervention. I have learned so much these past few years and it keeps my passion for teaching going strong!
When I’m not doing teacherly things, I love walking, graphic design, watching movies, and traveling to escape the cold of New England!
