Welcome to Room 25! I am Mrs. Meier. Santee School District has been my teaching home for 26 years! I have taught just about every grade level k-6, but I can honestly say the intermediate grades are where I feel most at home! This year we will focus on developing perseverence and positive attitudes about ourselves as learners, knowing that we CAN learn anything, and not giving up when the "going gets tough." I LOVE all types of literature and art, hands on science and math, and learning activities that leave an impact! This summer, I have discovered some awesome and exciting new ideas to try this year in our classroom!
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 Junior at West Hills High School! My youngest daughter is happily continuing her middle school years (8th grade) 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, I think gerbera daisies and tulips are beautiful. The sound of chirping birds, blue skies, cool breezes, and lazy mornings make me happy. Having all those things at the beach would be my personal paradise!
The joy of learning is what I want to bring to my classroom. I know we will have a great year together! 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!
