She taught at St. Cletus Catholic Middle School in St. Charles, Missouri for 9 years, which happens to be the Comets and are blue and gold. Mrs. Beckmann also taught Marie Cupit Stahlschmidt's sister-in-law, Anna. It's such a small world as Mr. Cupit says. after that, she taught at St. Dominic Catholic High School for 3 years before coming to SCC this year. She as taught all the subjects in math as well as life science, religion, drama, social studies, and art. She is teaching Honors and Academic Algebra 1 at SCC this year. She is super excited to be here and feels that God has placed her here. She believes God gave her many signs. It can't be a coincidence that she taught in St. Charles at a school with the colors blue and gold with the same mascot of Comets and also taught at St. Dominic, which is in the street address for SCC, can it??? God works in mysterious ways. Mrs. Beckmann believes all students can learn if given the chance and if effort is given. She feels blessed to be given the opportunity to help students explore and learn math in many different ways as well as to help all reach our ultimate goals of going to heaven.
