Mrs. Ashlyn Beard
Hello parents and students! I'm excited to teach 7th grade Science at Pearland Junior High South!
I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master's degree in Forensic Toxicology from the University of Florida. Before teaching, I was a Forensic Toxicologist at the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences for 16 years. My teaching experience includes being a substitute teacher for Pearland ISD and an 8th grade Science teacher in Pasadena ISD. 7th grade Science (Life Science) is a better fit with my education and professional experience.
I grew up in the Houston area and moved to Pearland in 2006. I'm married and have 3 daughters that attend Pearland ISD schools. My oldest is in 7th grade and my twins are in 4th grade. When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my family and leading two Girl Scout troops.
