Ms. Maranda Beck

At Freedom Elementary, we believe that every child has the potential to grow academically and socially.  My goal as a school counselor is to provide a safe, caring, and supportive environment so that each student can reach that potential.  Every student will know they are loved and valued, and each child will have ownership in the learning process.  I am excited to work with your family and be a part of your child’s education. We are a team!

This is my 23rd year in education and my 3rd year serving as a school counselor.  Previously, I taught music, first grade, and second grade (East and Freedom).  All of my teaching experience has been with the Waynesville R-VI School District.   Go Tigers!
