3rd Grade


MPES Third Grade

Beth Eastep


I was born and raised in Columbia, Tennessee. I graduated from Columbia Central High School. I love learning and to prove it I have an AS in Business from CSCC, a BBA in Marketing with an emphasis in Advertising from Memphis State University, A BS in Elementary Education (K-8) from MTSU, and a Master's in Reading and Literacy from Marygrove College. I have taught in the Maury County School system since 1999. I have taught 3rdgrade all of these years except one year of 2nd grade. Teaching is not just a job for me, but a passion and ministry.


My personal world looks like this. I am happily married to Scotty Eastep. I have three daughters, Rieves, Lila, and Logan. I have one son, Philip. We live in Mount Pleasant. I spend my time doing things with my family, helping others through my church, Destiny Church, and many other organizations such as the Pregnancy Center, Stuff the Bus Campaign, and our local schools. I love to read, and the beach is my HaPpY place. Most kids know me by the ladybugs that decorate my classroom! I love people and smiling is a must!

I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 1999. I began working at Mt. Pleasant Elementary in 2000. I’ve spent my career teaching 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two girls, son in law, grandson, and granddaughter. I also enjoy Tennessee Football, St. Louis Cardinals, and spending time outside.

We have an exciting year ahead that will be filled with lots to explore, experience, and learn! 

I received my professional teacher training and Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Lipscomb University in 2011. This is my 5th year at MPES.   I am also an MPES and MPHS alumnus!  It is an honor to have the opportunity to teach in the very elementary school that I attended as a child.  

I have one daughter who is a sixth grader at MPMS.  In my spare time, you can find me cheering on the MPMS Tigers, since my daughter is an MPMS cheerleader... Go Tigers! Also, I love to bake and spend time with my family.

I am looking forward to another exciting year of learning and growing from both myself and my students here at MPES!

I was born and raised in Lawrence County, TN. I have taught since 1993. My first 13 years were spent at Sacred Heart Catholic School teaching kindergarten. I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades in Maury County Schools. I have been happily teaching here at MPES since fall of 2016. I have one daughter who lives in Spring Hill and works in Brentwood. Teaching is the only profession I have ever wanted. I feel that it is a calling, and it is my passion. My heart is happy and full.
