Mrs. Vickie Beckham
I first came to Era ISD in August of 1979 as a new teacher. I was met in the parking lot by the new superintendent, Harvey Wilson. He immediately tried to enroll me as a new high school student. He was very surprised to find out that I was, however, his new Special Education teacher, and not a new student. (The Special Education Coop hired all the county Special Education teachers at that time.)
I have continued to teach Special Education here at Era for the past 41, going on 42 years. (Yes, Era ISD has continued to allow me to do what makes me happy - teach- and has not yet requested that I "move on" or indicated that I have "outlived my usefulness" and need to retire.)
