Ms. Becky Meinhardt
I am so excited to be working as the ESOL teacher at Murphy Elementary for a third 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 the position of 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 Gold's Gym! I love to teach!!!!
I am married with three boys: Kurt, Damian, and Xander (triplets!). We also have two cats named Pixels and Tank, a Ball Python named Roc Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Tree, three chickens, two chinchillas, a hamster, and a bearded dragon! 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 like to "try" being crafty (I bake, crochet, make homemade vanilla and soap...), but I have a short attention span:)
-I ride a motorcycle and am learning to play guitar.
