Ms. Beattie - Kindergarten


Mrs. Beattie

Hello! My name is Vanessa Beattie and I teach Kindergarten. This is my 15th year teaching at Abner Gibbs.  I feel so lucky to have a job that I absolutely LOVE! Aside from teaching, I love being a mom to my 2 boys, David and Stephen. We like to travel to fun places together, read new stories, and build lots of Legos!  


Kindergarten is such an important year for your child academically and socially. As important as reading and writing will be this year, I place just as much emphasis on the social aspects of our day. I work hard to build a community of learners who love school, and are kind and respectful to everyone. 


I know this will be a wonderful year for your child. If you have any questions or concerns along the way, please feel free to contact me at any time. I can be reached by phone or email and will get back to you as soon as I can. 572-6418/v.beattie@schoolsofwestfield.org
