Ms. Beth Bearden


I was born and raised in Adamsville, AL.  I graduated from Minor High School (Go Tigers!) in 1993.  I received my B.A. in History and French from Birmingham-Southern College in 1997.  Afterwards, I was awarded a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship and spent a year in France researching and writing about community and civil rights in remote areas.  When I returned to the United States, I returned to school and received my B.S. in Collaborative Education from Birmingham-Southern College in 2003.  I earned my M.S. in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (K-12) from Walden University in 2014.  I was also a part of the Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership for 8 years. 

When not teaching, I love to spend time with family and my dachshund, Buckle.  I also enjoy reading, playing trivia, and word puzzles.  My personal and professional heroes are Ruth Parker, Jaime Escalante, Lt. Joe Kenda, and Gayle Wilson.

I have been teaching 3rd Grade at Meadow View Elementary School since 2003.  This year, I will be Team Teaching with Mrs. Hipp where I will be teaching Reading and Social Studies.  I look forward to an exciting 2020-2021 School Year!
