For Mocksville Elementary School teacher Hannah Beck, Davie County has always been home. Her small town childhood experience was complemented by aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents living just down the road.
Throughout Hannah’s time as a student of Davie County Schools, multiple teachers made an impact on her life. These special individuals helped shape Hannah into the person she is today and inspired her desire to impact future generations of students by becoming a teacher.
To pursue teaching, Hannah attended UNC Greensboro where she studied Special Education K-12 and went on to obtain a master’s degree in behavioral and emotional disturbances. In 2008, she married Andrew Beck, her high school sweetheart. Following Andrew’s time in the Navy, they moved their family back to Davie County in order to share the experience of a small town upbringing and family oriented connections with their children.
Now in her 10th year of teaching, Hannah is an exceptional children’s teacher at Mocksville Elementary School. She strives to leave a positive impression on her students, build relationships with them, and continually remind them that she is in their corner supporting them.
When she’s not teaching, Hannah loves to spend time with her husband, two sons, Colton (8) and Lincoln (4), and extended family. The members of the Beck family are dog lovers and have a boxer named Lula and a malinois/shepherd named Valor who is working as a police K9. They often spend family time outdoors, in the mountains, or at the beach.
Hannah was a recipient of the Roy and Ruth Eldridge and James and Esther Wall scholarships.
