Ms. Beth Lafferty

Although my first year as a full staff member at A2 STEAM, this is actually my fourteenth as a classroom teacher. I’ve taught second, third, and fifth grades in Westland and Detroit, as well as subbing in Ann Arbor Public Schools at Bryant, Pattengill, and A2 STEAM. I am thrilled to be part of such a warm, welcoming and dynamic school community as A2 STEAM. I am happily married with three children of my own, Aidan, 13, Jacob, 11, and Fiona, 9. We love exploring new places together, both far and near. I also enjoy reading mysteries and getting together with family and friends.
