Ms. Beese

Hello and Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

My name is Debra Beese.  I'm beginning my third year at Hamline Elementary and my 15th year in St. Paul.  Overall, this is my 22nd year of teaching and I have taught 3rd through 6th grades.   During my first seven years of teaching, I taught at an alternative elementary school in Minneapolis. 

When I'm not at school, I am usually watching college or professional sports on TV, attending Lynx or Gopher women's basketball games, reading, or enjoying time with family and friends.  I also spend as much time as possible with my very loveable and spoiled Golden Retriever, Cassell.
