Ms. April Beddingfield

My name is April Beddingfield and I am excited to teach 2nd grade at Bryan Road Elementary. I have been in the field of education for over 25 years and have loved each and every year that I’ve worked with children!  I have taught Kindergarten through third grade, been a CCR teacher in special education and I’ve also directed a licensed preschool when my daughters were young.   I knew from high school that I wanted to be a teacher and I truly love being a part of each child’s journey as they are in my classroom.  

 I truly believe that all children deserve the opportunity to be in a school environment where they feel loved, respected and encouraged to do their best.  My goal is to create a passion for learning and love for school that lasts a lifetime! 

I grew up in northern North Carolina around the Lake Gaston area.  I attended the University of NC at Wilmington and received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  I hold certifications in regular education and Cross Categorical Resource  special education.  I live in Apex/Holly Springs with my husband and youngest daughter.  She will be a senior in high school this year- I can’t believe it!  My oldest daughter attends UNCW and is majoring in special education.  We have a sweet Maltese-Japanese Chin dog named Bella who loves to go for car rides! 

Bryan Road Elementary is an amazing school and I am honored to be a part of a team of teachers and staff who strive for excellence and whose goal each day is to create an environment for strong relationships, inclusion, happiness and a love for learning!
