• Hi!  My name is Mrs. Beth Goeken.  I'm a fourth grade teacher here at Parkside Elementary.  I've spent that last 2 years as a Literacy Coach in the district.  I am now excited to be back in the classroom teaching students.  I began teaching in Unit 5 in 1987, stayed home for 16 years with my own children, then returned to teaching in 2008.  I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Parkside Penguin family where we have an amazing staff, wonderful students, and such a supportive group of parents!
