Middle School Teacher
MaryBeth Arling joined World Academy in 2015 as a Middle School teacher. She is a 2011 graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a Master’s in Elementary Education, and she holds New Hampshire Teaching Certifications in Elementary Education (K-8), as well as Middle School Math (5-8).
Mrs. Arling grew up in Bedford, New Hampshire and attended the University of New Hampshire, majoring in Business Administration and Economics. After graduation, she spent sixteen years at Verizon until deciding on a career change to education. We are so grateful she did. She truly loves teaching this age group!!! She and her husband live in Windham with their two labs and they enjoy hiking and biking. Her two sons have graduated from UNH and are working and living outside of Boston.
MaryBeth loves teaching at the Middle School level, giving her students the support and skills to practice as part of their learning. Providing her students with a safe environment to try new things, to challenge themselves to work harder, and to collaborate with new friends is an integral part of her classroom. She values input from all students, and will generally call on a large number of students to increase participation and allow all students to find, refine and enjoy their voices. Mrs. Arling feels it is very important to be available to her students, whether it be a classroom moment, a lunch break, a study or after school. It is very important for her to get to know each student in school as well as out. She makes positive connections with all her students and loves to recognize and celebrate individual achievements as they highlight the rich diversity at World Academy.
In addition to her teaching duties, Mrs. Arling can be found out on the field with the girls soccer team in the fall, on the slopes with the ski club in the winter, and at track in the spring.
