I am a graduate of South Harrison High School and Northwest Missouri State University.  I taught two years at Bowling Green High School, substitute taught for two years and am beginning my 39th year at Keytesville High School.   

I grew up on a farm and even though I miss our cattle, I certainly don't miss the mud.

I enjoy spending time with my parents, two brothers and their wives, three nieces/one nephew and their children.  I have eleven great nieces and nephews and one great, great niece. 

As I told a group of students, I've taught more than half my life and have made Keytesville my home for more than half my life also.  I believe in helping others, doing things for the community and helping my students learn why those things are important and make you feel good.

I enjoy reading, baking, and flower gardening.

Fact or Fiction:  Miss P knows how to play the piano.  FACT.  I took piano lessons until I was a sophomore in high school.  I don't get to play much anymore and am really rusty.  Playing the piano was my stress releaser for many years.  

Fact or Fiction:  If she had been a boy her name would have been Dwight David because she was born the day Eisenhower was inaugurated.  FACT.  I was born the day President Eisenhower was inaugurated.  I really don't like the name Dwight so am glad that it isn't my name.  My dad only liked one girl's name, thus why I am named Beverly Ann.  

Fact or Fiction:  Miss P once showed the Grand Champion Steer at the Northwest Missouri State Fair. FACT.  My steer's name was Buffalo because he was shaped a lot like a buffalo.  I was so excited when he was selected as Grand Champion Hereford steer and couldn't believe that we would go on to be a part of the Championship Show.  While in that show, "Buff" stepped on my foot (I couldn't afford boots so was wearing tennis shoes).  I couldn't attempt to make him move because we had this "game" where I would lean against him and he would push back; I just had to stand there  and hope that he kept his correct stance.  WE WON!  I'm still proud of our accomplishment because I could only show my livestock at the county 4-H show and the Northwest Missouri State Fair.  Most of the kids I showed against showed all over.  I still miss working with and showing my Polled Herefords.  Bet most of you didn't see that one coming did you?
