Mr. Michael Beecham

Classroom Mission:  Students will actively engage and be responsible for their own academic and personal growth, in a fun, risk-free learning environment.

About me:  I was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska.  It graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1991 with my Bachelor of Arts in English and minor in History.  I spent the next 13 years climbing the corporate ladder in the Information Technology Department at several different Fortune 500 companies.  I was laid off in 2003 and decided to go back to school to do what I always wanted to do - teach.  I graduated from the University of Portland with my Master of Arts in Teaching and moved to Phoenix, Arizona to start my teaching career.  I taught 8th Grade Language Arts for 10 years before making the move to North Carolina.  I worked one year at Mount Mourne IB as an 8th Grade Language Arts and History teacher, before coming to Crossroads as a History Teacher.

I have lived in Nebraska, New York, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona before calling North Carolina home.  I am married to my beautiful wife Jamie, who runs a preschool out of our home's carriage house.  I have two children; Cooper, who is in 4th Grade and Jovie, who is in 1st Grade; both go to Coddle Creek.
