Angelique Beckwith - Reading Specialist
I am the TIER II and TIER III reading intervention teacher. I received my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in reading and early childhood endorsement from SFA. I also received a master’s degree in education from SFA. I completed the dyslexia specialist program from Neuhaus Education Center in Houston and am a dyslexia specialist. I am a certified academic language therapist and a member of the Academic Language Therapy Association.
I also am a licensed dyslexia therapist through the Texas Department of State Health Services. My teaching career started with Klein Independent School District, where I taught third and fourth grades for five years. I also taught for two years in prekindergarten II for the SFA Early Childhood Laboratory. After the lab, I was able to begin teaching at the SFA Charter School. I taught third grade for four years before beginning my work as an intervention teacher working with struggling readers and children with dyslexia. I also serve as the district test coordinator for State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System and coordinate 504 and Language Proficiency Assessment Committee meetings.

I am so excited to begin my second year as the Special Services Coordinator at the SFA Charter School. I received my Bachelor of Science in Special Education from Stephen F. Austin State University. In 2000, I returned to SFA to complete the all-level certification in Special Education. I taught for 12 years at Carpenter Elementary as a resource, self-contained and inclusion teacher for Kindergarten through 5th grade. My husband and I have three sons. Our oldest and his wife live in Lubbock, Texas with our first grandchild. We have a senior at TCU in Ft. Worth and a senior at Nacogdoches High School.
