Beth Vernon

Blue Springs, MO | Years Taught: 1985 – Present

Beth has a Golden Rule for teaching: Create the classroom that I would want to learn and grow in every day. Her formula for success is found in colorful, plastic letters on the blackboard in the front of her room: “We are making memories.” This is a daily reminder of the purpose of working together in a classroom—that becoming smarter is a process that everyone works toward, bit by bit, every single day.
