My name is Amber Beatty and I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 2006. Oakland Heights has been my teaching home since 2007. I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I’ve discovered that my heart belongs in second grade. Teaching my students that they are all capable of success is my number one goal.


My name is Anne Goemmer. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 2003, and received my master's degree in elementary education in 2007. I have been teaching at Oakland since 2004. I taught first grade for five years before I began teaching first and second grades in a looping cycle, which means that I have the privilege of teaching the same students for two years.
