I was a Navy brat so I was born in New York and have lived in multiple places along the east coast until we settled in Aiken in 1996. I have been married since 2006 and we have 2 beautiful girls, Kelsey and Kayla. I am a certified radiographer and worked as an interventional radiologic technologist for 15 years at University and Trinity Hospital. I am a member at Cedar Creek Church where I volunteered in the nursery for 10 years and currently volunteer in Kidz Worship where we engage elementary students in the word of God through skits and fun activities. I enjoy playing softball with my church, reading, watching movies, traveling and spending time with my family and friends. I am looking forward to snuggling babies and having a great year at SAPK!

Hi! My name is Erin Beck and I have been with SAPK since fall of 2020. I was raised in Charleston, SC and then moved to Jackson, TN where I met my husband Jeremy. We have been married since 2005 and have 3 wonderful kids named Kate, Karis, and Silas. My younger two kids both attended SAPK and we loved it so much that I decided to join the staff! Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, anything coffee related, Braves baseball, and all the true crime podcasts.

I was born and raised in Virginia, where I met my husband. We have 3 kids, Asher, Nora and Mae. We moved to Aiken in October 2020 after spending a short stint in upstate New York. My youngest was a student at SAPK and I became a substitute teacher at SAPK and then part of the Bible Friends team. I enjoy reading, crafting and trips to the beach and spending time with friends and family. I am super excited to be part of the SAPK staff as a 2K teacher.

I have been SAPK's 3 Plus teacher since 2019. My family moved to Aiken in 2012 and we knew this beautiful city was where we belonged! I have three amazing children, all of which attended this amazing preschool. I attended the University of West Florida and received my bachelor of art. Did you know that before children can write they need to draw? I am an artist by trade and value creativity and individuality. I also enjoy intermingling art with science and creating fun and exciting STEAM activities throughout the year!

My husband Andy and I have been married since 1996. We moved our family of three to Aiken in 1998 from Tennessee. We became a part of the SAPK family in 2001 when we enrolled our eldest son in a 3k class. As our family grew to 7, each of our 5 children attended SAPK. Throughout the years my role at SAPK has changed many times. I have been a parent, a substitute, a Parent’s Day Out Worker, Kindergarten Aid, PTO Volunteer and now a 3K teacher. I have always enjoyed working with little ones and knew that this is where God wanted me to be. I cherish getting to be a part of your child’s early education and can’t wait for another great year at SAPK.

My name is Beth Hendrix and I absolutely love teaching your children. Each day is a complete surprise and the adventure I get to go on with your child brings a smile to my face everyday. My background in Psychology and Biology has allowed me to work with children in various positions - including mental health and early intervention. My journey at SAPK began as a substitute and I happily advanced to my current role as a 3K teacher in 2021. In my free time you can find me at dance class, swim meet, or on the soccer field with my husband Nathan supporting our 3 girls who were fortunate to attend SPK. I also enjoy a good true crime podcast and theme parks. Let me know if you have any recommendations!

My husband Don and I met during high school in Kingwood, Texas. We moved to Aiken after our first son Robert was born. We became a part of the SAPC/SAPK family before our second son Isaac was born. Aiken has been a wonderful place to raise our family. SAPK is my ‘happy place’! I have been blessed with the privilege of teaching many preschoolers. I find lots of joy sharing music and movement with all of the preschool classes. I love to encourage little ones to grow in spirit, mind and body. My free time is spent with my family camping and traveling.
