My name is Darla Beckwith and I teach fifth grade at Grace Lutheran School. I earned by Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Concordia University Chicago. My first call was to Redeemer Lutheran School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grades there for 3 years. I’ve been teaching at Grace for…well, a while anyhow!
I am originally from Clintonville, Wisconsin. I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. Many of them are married, and so I have 3 nieces and 3 nephews! I am very close with my family, who all still live in Wisconsin, so I take frequent trips up there! I was married in 2006 to my marvelous husband, Dan. Together we like to tackle home improvement projects, play sports, and do anything outdoors!
As you can probably guess, it was very different growing up in Wisconsin! There was snow, snow, and more snow for a lot of the year, but that never stopped us from going out and cheering for the GREEN and GOLD (Green Bay Packers for you non-fans)! Yes, I am your typical cheesehead, rooting loudly wherever I am!
I enjoy exploring the great love of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ with my students. No matter what the subject matter, we can always find His amazing presence!!!
