A little bit about Mrs. Beltman...

I studied Math, Secondary Education, and Spanish at Wheaton College in Illinois. I have taught both high school and middle school math classes over the past 21 years. This is my 11th year in Forest Hills.

I enjoy traveling, hiking, biking, playing and watching volleyball, exploring West Michigan, and spending time with my family.
