Mrs. Ashley L. Beam

My name is Ashley Beam and I am a new History teacher at East Lincoln High School. While this is my first year at East Lincoln, it is my twenty-first year teaching! I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, where I graduated from West Charlotte High School.  I have a degree in Education from UNC-Chapel Hill, I'm National Board Certified, and I am licensed in AIG. I am married to my best friend, Matt Beam, who owns Beam Boys' Bargains in Lincolnton.  We have three VERY active children- Jackson (14), Davis (12), and Emma (10).  Our lives pretty much revolve around sports (baseball, football, basketball, softball, gymnastics, cheerleading, and horseback riding) and family. We also have a Yellow Lab named Izzy who gets into trouble on a regular basis! I am so excited to start this next chapter as a History teacher and the Varsity Cheerleading Coach at ELHS!
