Carolyn R. Beever

Art has been a part of my life from the first moment I started my first art lesson at the age of six. I studied
under Lou Musgrove in Petersburg, Virginia from the first grade through high school. After graduating from
Mary Washington College (UMW) with a BA in Fine Arts and Art Education, I immediately began teaching
art. For the next 43 years, I taught art in high, middle and elementary schools in Virginia.

In 1987 an Apple GS with PaintWorks Plus software was placed in my art room at Godwin Middle School
in Prince William County. That small machine sparked a completely new creative direction in me. In 1995, I
began teaching my art classes in a computer lab at that middle school (would be known as Computer Graphics
now). In 2000, I moved to the first instructional technology high school in PWC. and wrote the curriculum for
the Computer Graphics I, II, Multimedia I, II and Independent Studies for Multimedia for the county. I taught
the courses until my retirement in 2007.

Through the years, I have taken courses in Art and Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth
University plus earned a certificate in Instructional Technology from George Mason University. Before the
computer consumed my interests, I was pursuing a Masters in Liberal Studies at UMC. But, with only 15 hours
to go for completion, I changed my direction toward technology.

I have lived in Stafford County, VA for the last 33 years with my husband Robert. I had two children, Riley and
Anna. Riley was killed in an automobile accident in 1986. Anna is widowed and has one child, Caroline.
