Ms. Karen Beaty - Art

I began my teaching career in Newton Massachusetts where I student taught, and then worked as the City-Wide Art Teacher for grades k-5 teaching in five elementary schools across the district. After working in Newton I was the Visual Arts Teacher at Nantucket Elementary School for two years teaching grades 3-5 as well as teaching ceramics classes at the Artist Association of Nantucket in the summer. 

I am very excited to begin the next phase of my teaching career at Chatham Elementary School. I grew up in Yarmouthport and it feels great to be back home on the Cape! I am looking forward to getting to know all of my students and becoming part of the community here.
