“I feel like I’ve worked very hard throughout my teaching career to give my students the best possible chance at success at the next level,” Beckett says. “I feel like I’ve become a good teacher who still feels the need to work hard to improve.”
Mr. Beckett feels honored to be walking the red carpet with the other inductees, “Being able to walk down the red carpet with this year’s Full Sail Hall of Fame inductees will be an incredible feeling! […] It will be unbelievable to be on the same stage as them!”
