Beck Ellingson

School Psychologist


Education & Experience: 

Beck earned her MA and Ph.D. degrees in School Psychology at the University of Minnesota. Prior to that, Beck attended Bethel University and earned a BA in Psychology, with minors in math and music. Beck started her career as a school psychologist with Minneapolis Public Schools before joining the team at Groves in 2022. Beck is committed to being a calming, non-judgmental presence in school settings. She has expertise in the use of assessment in a hypothesis testing framework, reliability and validity of the interpretation and use of assessments, and identifying alternative forms of assessment. Beck finds joy in observing what children are able to do and the learning that takes place during the small moments of the school day.


Beck lives in Minneapolis with her husband and cat, Luna. She enjoys being in nature — especially in the woods along the North Shore of Minnesota. In her free time, Beck enjoys playing games with family and friends, finding plants to add to her collection, and cross-stitching.
