My name is Katie Beggs and I absolutely love being a math teacher here at RIS. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University with my Bachelors in Middle Level Education in 2021. I am a United States Navy veteran, with four years active duty. In my free time I love spending time with my family, crafting, and playing video games. I look forward to many more years at RIS and meeting some wonderful children.
