Hello My Name Is...

Paula Beckman


Welcome back to the 2022-23 school year! I’m so happy to be part of the James Breckinridge community and one of the assistant principals. I began teaching in 1987 with Roanoke City Schools and have taught many students and their parents over the years. Having had various positions through the years ranging from classroom teacher, EL teacher, Instructional Coach, and Administrator, I have played a part in all aspects of our students’ education. I hold a B.A. in Elementary Education from Roanoke College, a M.S. in Educational Leadership and Administration from Radford University, and have an ESOL teaching endorsement. 

My husband, Peter, and I have two grown sons, Chris and Joey, and a Shih-Poo named Buddy.
