Marie Beach

IB Coordinator for MYP and DP Programmes

DP Film Teacher

 

I am proud to embrace my second full year at Greeley West High School as the International Baccalaureate Coordinator for both the Middle Years Programme for incoming 9th and 10th graders  and the Diploma Programme for 11th and 12th graders. Prior to coming out west, I had taught for 10 years in sultry Savannah, Georgia in the IB Programmes and as a Reading Teacher.  I had the luck to teach a variety of courses: Reading, MYP English 10, American Literature, DP English 11, DP English 12, DP Theatre, and DP Film. 

 

Born in Iowa, but growing up in the south (Go Dawgs!), I was eager to escape the humidity for the snowy mountains with my husband, 3 beagle rescue mixes, and a bunny (RIP Shakespeare 2007-2017).

  • I am proud to embrace my fourth full year at Greeley West High School as the International Baccalaureate Coordinator for both the Middle Years Programme for incoming 9th and 10th graders  and the Diploma Programme for 11th and 12th graders.  Each year I organize the Personal Project Showcase--every 10th grade student creates and presents a project displaying their personal interest and talents.  GWHS Personal Project Website.  

    2019 is my first official year as the German American Partnership Coordinator.  Every two years, Greeley West High School and Goethe Gymnasium Gaggenau in Gaggenau, Germany complete a short, 3 week exchange.  Sponsored by the United States Department of State: Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the Goethe Institute and German Government, 21 students and 2 teachers from each school travel abroad inspiring intercultural understanding. For more information, see the GAPP Website and the 2019-20 GWHS GAPP Presentation.
