My name is Liz Beckman and I am the Reading Specialist at Buckland Mills. I began my teaching career in Upstate New York teaching 1st grade. I moved to Virginia is 2010 and taught 2nd grade in Fairfax before moving to Gainesville to teach 2nd grade at Buckland Mills. This is my 7th year as a Reading Specialist and my 15th year teaching!

I grew up in Syracuse, New York and graduated from Syracuse University with Bachelor's Degrees in Elementary Education, Special Education and Sociology. I also have a Master's Degree from the State University of New York at Oswego in Literacy Education.  

I currently live in Gainesville with my husband, our two daughters and our Catahoula Leopard Dog!

Please reach out to me if you have any questions!
