Beth Armstrong has been teaching upper school English for over twenty-five years. Since 1998 she has taught ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade English at Hathaway Brown. She was the faculty advisor to HB's literary magazine, Scripta, and now advises the new student magazine, Retrospect. Beth has served as the dean of faculty for the Aspire program, as English department chair, and as ninth grade dean.
She loves to travel and has lived in England and Mexico, as well as Illinois, California, Massachusetts, Texas, and Maryland. She is excited to be offering a student trip to Iceland through HBs Center for Global Citizenship.
When she has free time, Beth bicycles, practices yoga, hikes the Metroparks, and reads. At this point, she cannot identify one writer she likes best, but when she was eleven, her favorite author was Zilpha Keatley Snyder.
