Welcome to Room 25! I am Mrs. Meier and it is my privilege to teach your children this year. I have been at Rio Seco for 25 years! I have taught many grade levels, but I can honestly say 4th grade has turned into one of the grades I love best! I know this year will be a year of amazing growth for your child. One of my true beliefs is that learning never ends, and that is true for me as well. This year we will focus on having a "growth mindset," knowing that we can learn anything, and not giving up when the going gets tough. I have a tremendous love of literature and art, science and math. I hope to not only share these loves, but to also build that love of learning into the lives of the all the children I teach.
When I'm not at school, I spend a lot of time with my family...Ralph, my husband, and Sophie and Madeline, my two beautiful daughters. Oh, and we also have our handsome, very much loved black lab, Olympus. Time flies! I can't believe my oldest daughter is now a Sophomore at West Hills High School! My youngest daughter is happily continuing her middle school years at Lakeside Middle School.Some of the things I love are reading, crossword puzzles (or any kind of puzzles), art and design, and my new found love...cooking, I love dark chocolate, coffee, spicy food, and the smell of anything citrus. Although I am allergic to flowers, gerbera daisies and tulips are beautiful. Chirping birds, blue skies, gentle breezes, and lazy mornings make me happy, but the beach.is my true happy place.
The joy of learning is what I want to bring to my classroom. I know we will have a great year of incredible learning! I look forward to meeting all of you, getting to know you more throughout the year, and partnering with you to make your child's school experiences a success!
