Principal Krista Smart Beall is honored to be bringing Ivybrook Academy’s unique approach to early childhood education to the Wilmington community. With a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education, Krista has dedicated her teaching career to helping children feel successful and develop a positive relationship with learning. Being the daughter of two career teachers inspired Krista to pursue a lifelong career in education. She believes that every child should feel valued and actively participate in their own individualized learning path.
Krista and her husband Nicholas Beall joined the Ivybrook family and are looking forward to sharing its innovative and progressive curriculum with their students and families. Together, they believe in the importance of cultivating a love of learning from an early age. They feel privileged and elated to share in this commitment to excellence in the beautiful community of Wilmington, North Carolina.
