Getting to know Mrs. Beard

I love teaching kindergarten and have been teaching for 15 years in Baltimore County - - 12 of them in Kindergarten at Hillcrest Elementary! Towson University is my alma mater and my undergraduate degree is in early childhood education. I also have my Masters degree in reading and literacy.


My husband, Kevin, and I have been married for 32 exciting years. Originally from a small town on the eastern shore, we moved to Baltimore right after we got married. Being Catonsville residents, we are currently empty nesters. Our son, Tyler, is a 25 year old computer science engineer, a graduate of James Madison University and recently moved to San Diego, CA. Our daughter, Kelli, is a 22 year old senior at George Mason University, plays lacrosse for the University and is double majoring in event management and graphic design.


You will see me wearing purple every Friday during football season as I am a huge Ravens fan. I also enjoy rooting for the Orioles, traveling, going to the beach, reading, and the company of dear friends and family.

Welcome to Kindergarten:

Kindergarten is absolutely the most fantastic grade to teach. Seeing the progress of my students throughout the year is so rewarding and the joy and enthusiasm your little ones bring to class every day keeps me continually loving kindergarten. Being partners in your child's education is vitally important to their success. I look forward to developing relationships with my students and their parents.
