Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Deborah Bean
I am so excited to be starting my second year at Crossroads Middle School. This is my eleventh year teaching overall, which includes a year teaching in China, work in a charter school, a specialty S.T.E.M. school and a few different general public schools. As a teacher, I have high expectations and work hard to help students achieve beyond what they thought was possible. I love that moment when a student begins to understand something and gets excited about learning. I have a Bachelors Degree from Utah State University in k-8 education and a Masters Degree in Public Administration and Nonprofit Management from the University of Utah. Besides teaching, I love anything involving being outdoors, especially hiking, camping, and backpacking. I love to travel and I loved living in another country and experiencing another culture firsthand.
