Hello, Knox Families! My name is Jillian (Jill) Beall, my family and I moved here in May 2020 from the Windy City, where I was born and raised! We have 3 darling boys that made the trek here with us that will also be attending CUSD80. We are huge hockey fans and can find us wherever the puck drops, whether at the rink or tuning in to cheer on our favorite NHL teams.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my BS in Elementary Education in 2003 from Southern Illinois University and received a Social Science and Gifted Endorsement years later. I completed a total of 10 years of teaching for Plainfield School District in Illinois, and one year at Hohokam Elementary in Scottsdale during the 2008-2009 school year. I’m looking forward to joining yet another Arizona school district and learning and building relationships with all of our Knox students!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe in teaching the WHOLE child, learning from them, and digging deep into their passions. Building those relationships promotes trust and a sense of safety. I feel a child is most successful when given the space to allow their best inner self to shine through their work. My goal always is to create an engaging learning environment where students can use their strengths with our integrative approach and work to overcome weaknesses. Our job is to support them on their journey of growth as they navigate the world around them!
