Beverly Manor New Staff Spotlight, Please help me in welcoming each of our new staff members at Beverly Manor and enjoy learning about them from their short bios as they look forward to working with our Beverly Manor kiddos. Kaitlin Kline- Hi y’all! My name is Kaitlin Kline, I am actually a recent Illinois transplant as my husband, Jared, and I just moved to Peoria last year. I grew up in Billings, Montana and went to university in Missoula, MT, where I majored in Elementary Ed and minored in Psychology. I taught 5th grade last year and am so excited to be joining the 6th grade team this year! My passions include reading, my cats, music, movies, food, going for walks, listening to podcasts, and more reading. I can’t wait to meet everyone and see what adventures this new year and new school will hold! Beau Biedscheid- Hello! My name is Beau Biedscheid and I will be teaching choir and general music at Beverly Manor this year. I'm very excited about this position as it allows me the opportunity to give back to the community I grew up in. I spent my childhood in Washington Illinois and attended Central Intermediate School. As a young student, I was heavily involved with the musical arts. I participated in choir and played saxophone in the band. As I moved through high school I became more invested in the arts, devoting a large amount of time to music and participating in extracurriculars such as the musical, madrigals, and the marching band. I studied music education at Illinois Wesleyan University and graduated in 2018. While at Illinois Wesleyan, I met my wife Caroline. She is a wonderful pianist and an even more wonderful person. We love traveling, eating delicious food, and caring for Nougat (our cat). We hope to visit all fifty states and tackle the rest of the globe after that. I'm very excited to bring my musical talents to Beverly Manor and look forward to rejoining this wonderful community. Kristol (Kris) Durr- Hello, I am Kris Durr and I am thrilled to join the D50 family! My husband and I have lived in Washington for the last eighteen years and we have two daughters who will be a Junior and a Senior at WCHS in the fall. I have spent the last 10 years working as first a Classroom Aide and more recently as Reading Interventionist at D52. I am very excited to bring my knowledge of Wilson and reading to D50 and to become a member of our 5th-grade team. Jennifer Chiras- Hello! My name is Jennifer Chiras and I will be the new School Counselor at Beverly Manor. I have worked in the field of Child and Adolescent Mental Health for 15 years and most recently worked as a Crisis Therapist at Children’s Home. I am a mother to two wonderful children and we reside here within the district. District 50 and Beverly Manor especially holds a special place in my heart as I am a District 50 Alumna. I attended Kindergarten through 8th grade here and come from a longline of District 50 graduates. I enjoy reading, watching TV/Movies and cheering for my kids at their various sports events. For this new school year, I hope to bring my knowledge and experience working with children and families to help support our District 50 community in their journey to happy, healthy lives. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help and I look forward to meeting and working with all of you! **Picture to come!
