Bonnie Beavan, a mathematics teacher at Spring Ridge Middle School, has been named the St. Mary's County Public Schools Teacher of the Year for 2008.

 

"While her efforts are exceptional, Ms. Beavan's results with students are phenomenal," wrote Ms. Kathy Norton, assistant principal of Spring Ridge Middle School, in her letter of recommendation. "Her students' quarterly benchmark assessments exceed all other math teachers in the county. Some of her students who began this year with basic (below average) scores are achieving advanced scores consistently. She not only has closed the achievement gap for our students, but outperformed all others on the Adequate Yearly Growth charts."

 

Beavan, who earned a Master of Arts degree in leadership in teaching from the College of Notre Dame in 2007, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in human studies from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2003, has served as a mathematics teacher at Spring Ridge Middle School since joining the school system in 2003.
