Ms. Beth Rockey
Where are you from? Although born in Spokane, WA, North Beach has been my home since I was in elementary school. And I am pleased to raise my two boys here as well. There is no place better than here!
High school and college experience: I graduated from North Beach in 1995. I attended Grays Harbor College first as a Running Start student and then again to finish up my BA in Education through Washington State University distance learning. My MA is in Ethics, Equity, and Social Justice.
Teaching experience: This is my 20th year teaching in the North Beach School District. Right up to this year, I have taught at Ocean Shores Elementary. Throughout the years, I have taught every grade with the exception of first grade. I am excited to move into a position where I get to share my enthusiasm for ELA with junior high students.

How would you describe yourself and your hobbies and interests: A perfect evening for me includes a Pacific Northwest storm- a spooky story in hand, or playing board games by candlelight with family and friends.
