Beth has been a member of the Grove team for 15 years. She is awed and inspired by all of the changes that have happened over the years to make Grove a wonderful learning environment and a great place to work. She loves working with adolescents and the collaborative nature of the Montessori learning environment (as well as the goats). Beth received her BS in Anthropology, with an emphasis in biological anthropology, from UC Riverside and her MEd and single subject credential in Social Sciences from National University. She also has a single subject credential in English and graduated from the NAMTA/AMI Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies in 2005. Beth taught a college course for high school students in Archaeology in 2001 and discovered a love for teaching. Since 2004 she has been teaching Social Studies and Drama, as well as AP World History, Biology, and many electives at The Grove School. This year Beth has returned as the Thespian Club adviser for both the High School and Middle School and is the Middle School Board Representative.
