Learn Something About Me

Welcome to 8th grade American History! 

Hi! My name is Beth Batson. I am married to Mark Batson who has worked for Publix about a million years. We have 2 great kids who both go to McKeel.  Being a 5th generation Florida native, I have always been interested in the History of Florida and the United States.  History is one of my favorite subjects and I believe when you are passionate about the subject you teach, it shows in your work.


When I'm not at school, I'm either reading, gardening, traveling, or thinking about traveling.


My Education and Professional Background

This is my 3rd year at McKeel, teaching U.S. History. I graduated in 1998 from University of South Florida with a degree in Criminology. I am certified to teach Elementary K-6 and 6-12 Social Science.


What to Expect

This year is guaranteed to bring new experiences, obstacles and opportunities. Classes this year will be offered virtually and face to face. I know it will take some patience, empathy and a healthy dose of encouragement.  The students and I will need all the support we can get, so that we can succeed together.
