Pam Beckner
The Inspirational Person of the Month for February is Pam Beckner, Teacher at Farmingdale Elementary.
Pam is described as someone who inspires both her students and staff members to create a classroom that motivates students to do their best! Along with teaching academics, she encourages social skills and friendships with all of her students. She provides a lending library available to all the students in her class. She incorporates strategies from occupational, physical and speech therapy into her students’ daily schedules. The paraprofessionals that work in her classroom love working under her direction. As one paraprofessional wrote: “The past 18 years I have learned so much from working with her. She has so many ideas for each individual child. She gives her whole heart to her students.” Another para shared: “She is kind and compassionate and never gives up on her students.” Her paras consider themselves very blessed. She has been teaching many years and chooses to do so because she loves what she does. Congratulations Pam!!!!!
