Mrs. Ashley Van Beek

My name is Ashley Van Beek and I am a graduate of Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) with a B.S. of Civil Engineering.  I  worked as a transportation engineer in Louisiana before retiring from engineering to be home with my children. During the time I stayed home with my children, I was a private math and science tutor and teacher. A passion of mine is to help kids realize that math and science can be really fun!

I am entering my fourth year teaching AP Physics at MBHS for the 2021-2022 year. I am honored and excited to be teaching the AP Physics classes and continuing the excellence with which the MBHS AP Physics program is known.  As always, I look forward to a great year with the students! 

When I am not teaching I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family which includes my husband of 27 years, my 4 children and my 2 dogs.  My children range in age from 21 to 14 so I understand first hand the season of life of the high school student.
