Mrs. Amanda Beggs

   Hello!  I'm Mrs. Beggs, a first grade teacher at JNE!  This year marks my thirteenth year of teaching and my ninth year of teaching first grade at JNE.   I started my career teaching kindergarten for four years in Lone Jack, Missouri, before finding my home at John Nowlin.


   I have my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from UCM and my Master's Degree in Quality Education from Graceland University. I have also taken an additional thirty-nine graduate hours.  


   My family keeps me busy and entertained when I am away from John Nowlin.  My husband teaches computer literacy to 7th and 8th grade students.  My son is a third grader this year.  We also have a basset hound named Ruby that rounds our family out perfectly. I truly enjoy getting to know the students and families at John Nowlin!

Fun Facts:
My favorite food is Mexican!
I love chai tea lattes, french vanilla cappuccinos and flavored green tea!
Chocolate and peanut butter make me happy!
I was the 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year at John Nowlin!
