Hello, my name is Sarah Beckworth. I was raised in Boone, NC, graduating from Watauga High School in 1998. I have a BS in English from Appalachian State University and a MA in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I received my National Board certification in 2009. This is my fourteenth year teaching English here at ACHS, and I love it as much as I did when I student taught here in 2002. I also teach part time in the English department of Wilkes Community College at our local Ashe Campus.
I am a mother of three precious children, Evie, Sam, and Elias, and I share an office here at the high school with my husband and fellow English teacher, Josh Beckworth.
My classes this semester are as follows: Advanced English II, Advanced English IV, and AP Language and Composition on the fall semester with first period planning. In the spring I have fourth period planning and teach Advanced English II, English IV, and AP Literature and Composition.
I am looking forward to this year and my continued work with the students of Ashe County!
