Mrs. Sandy Beall

Art

I was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan and moved to Dayton with my parents when I was in the 8th grade. We joined Immaculate Conception parish within weeks of arriving in Belmont. I have been a parish member for over 45 years. I attended Carroll High School and received a BFA from the University of Dayton.

After graduating from college, I spent many years working in management and in retail sales for Elder Beerman Stores but my dream to teach elementary school Art never left me. While two of my children were still attending Immaculate Conception, I approached the principal and suggested that the school needed an Art Teacher. I was thrilled when she agreed and the next year, I began teaching part-time Art. Throughout the more than 16 years that I have been at ICS, I have taught Art along with Religion, Social Studies and Physical Education. As a teacher, Art has always been my favorite subject.

I am married to a retired Dayton Police officer and I have three grown children (all in the military) and two dear grandchildren. In my spare time I love to walk, watch movies and spend time with my family.
