“Humans of Sacred Heart” – Mrs. Rebecca Beaton

What was your favorite part about teaching in the Sacred Heart Greenwich community?

“This is a very difficult question because I adored teaching at Sacred Heart.  Seeing all of your bright smiles and listening to your cheerful chatter and laughter as class begins was always such a delight.  Hearing students’ exclamations of wonder while looking through a microscope was so much fun.  I loved to listen to your exchange of ideas and to the ways that you support one another during class discussions. My students’ humor, kindness, and spirit made everyday a joy.”

What will you miss the most about Sacred Heart?  

“The gorgeous view from the biology laboratory and the delicious lunches.  No, seriously, I will miss connecting with all of my students on a daily basis.”

What is next for you?

“My goal is to continue teaching Upper School life sciences.  Some plans are in the works, but not finalized. In the meantime, I will spend the rest of the winter skiing on the weekends.  In March my family is traveling to Italy.  I have got lots of unfinished knitting projects.  I have high hopes of completing at least a few of them in 2020.”

The King Street Chronicle thanks Mrs. Rebecca Beaton, Upper School Biology Teacher, for her contributions to “Humans of Sacred Heart.”
