MS Science Teacher
My name is Beth Shore and I love being a middle school teacher here in Amherst, Wisconsin. I currently teach 7th grade math, 7th grade pre-algebra and 2 sections of 8th grade reading. I also teach a small supported study hall. In the past I have taught special ed., kindergarten, 4th grade, 5th grade, 8th grade science, and title one reading.
I am originally from Bemidji, MN. I grew up on a hobby farm and enjoyed being involved in many organizations. I was an Ambassador and member of 4-H for 10 years and was also involved in school and church organizations.
I attended Bemidji State University where I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education. I carried middle school and kindergarten endorsements and had concentrations in math, science and social studies. I recently completed my Master’s in Environmental Education from UWSP.
I truly enjoy teaching science and strongly believe in utilizing a hands-on approach. 7th grade is focused on life science and we spend the year learning about ourselves, the organisms we live with and how we relate in our environment. My passion for books (I was almost a librarian- and you can tell it when you walk in my room!) is something that I enjoy sharing with my reading students. Math is a natural tie in to science and is something that I also enjoy.
I am the Middle School Student Council Advisor and was our yearbook advisor for 10 years. Being involved with our future leaders is a challenge that I embrace. Year after year I am impressed with the desire of middle school students to take charge of their world and make it a better place to be.
You may also catch me out at one of our school forests. I am the school forest coordinator and help to plan the outings to the school forest for all of our elementary and some of our middle school students. Our school forests provide an excellent opportunity for students to connect with the natural world.
