My name is Lance Beam.  I live in Cherryville with my wife (Suzanne), who also teaches at John Chavis, and our two daughters.  I graduated from Cherryville High School in 1998 and NC State University in 2003.  This is my 17th year teaching.  I taught 11 years at Shelby High School in Cleveland County. This is my sixth year teaching at John Chavis Middle School. I'm also the head Softball Coach at John Chavis Middle School.  I'm very thankful and excited to be teaching in my hometown. When I'm away from school, I spend time with my family and friends and cheering on the Tarheels.
