About Ms. Beckendorf (Becks)

A lifetime SC football fan, I graduated from USC.  When my boys were young, I took literature and writing classes and had little success in getting published. After years in the business world, I returned to school (California State University, Northridge) to earn my single subject credential in English. I later completed my masters in American Studies at Pepperdine. I love to learn!

My obsessions include rowing, hiking, biking, reading, traveling, and of course the sunshines in my life: my sons, my daughters-in-law, my "daughter" and my dog (picture shown). My older son graduated from Southern Methodist University and is now back in school at SMC taking prerequisites to pursue a career in Civil Engineering. My younger son graduated from James Madison University and is now an ER  physician's assistant in Roanoke, Virginia. They both married lovely women. Two years ago, I became the legal guardian of my daughter-in-law's little sister, so I am now raising a fourteen year old girl, who is a sweetheart. She attends CCMS, so I get to be a parent once again. I am really very proud of all of them.

This year, I am teaching English 12 with a focus on the students attending university. I am so thankful that I found my niche and that I am in a career that I love. 
Life is good.


English 12 work during Dismissal

Students will receive an email via Google Classroom, informing them of their assignments. It is very important that as seniors, they complete all work towards graduation. (No senioritis!)
Parents and students, as always, I am available via email to answer your questions or concerns during regular school hours. 
Please stay safe; I already miss you kids.
