Ms. Becky Meinhardt
I am so excited to be working as the ESOL teacher at Murphy Elementary for the seventh year! Here are some facts about me:
I have been teaching since 2000. I spent my first nine years at House Springs Intermediate School teaching sixth grade. I spent six years at Murphy Elementary in fourth grade. Three years ago, I took my third grade class up to fourth grade with me!!! Currently, I am in my seventh year as an Elementary ELL (English Language Learner) teacher. I am certified to teach Early Childhood (birth to age 3); Elementary Education (1-6); and Middle School Math and Science (5-9). I am also a National Board Certified teacher. Occasionally, when needed, I am an adjunct instructor for Jefferson College's Teacher Education Program. Finally, I am a group fitness instructor at Club Fitness! I love to teach!!!!
I am married with three boys: Kurt, Damian, and Xander (triplets!). We also have a dog named Bowie, two cats named Pixels and Tank, a Ball Python named Roc Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Tree, and classroom chinchillas (Carlos and Tommy)! If I'm not with my boys or at school, you can find me at the gym!
Some fun facts about me:
-I can't resist cookies! (My favorite foods are cookies and salad!)
-I love music, especially ROCK!
-I can ride a motorcycle solo.
