I have attended many different Continuing Education opportunities every summer and sometimes throughout the school year to seek more diverse and interesting ways to present material and to teach my students. Many of the topics included involve Science Concepts, Technology Uses, and Gifted and Talented Activities.
I came to Central Heights ISD in the school year of 1990-91 as a Special Education Teacher. I taught in Special Ed. for 21 years, most of these being in a Resource Setting with 7th and 8th grade students. In the school year 2011-12, I was offered the opportunity to change positions to become a Middle School Science Teacher. I accepted and have never regretted a second from that decision.
I have been with Central Heights ISD 25 years and love the students here like they are my own children!!
CHISD is the onlyschool district that I have worked for, so I consider it my home.
I have worked in the past for Zale Corporation in Irving, Texas, Wal-Mart in Nacogdoches and Cosmos Tablet Company in Palestine, Texas.
I am happily married to my husband, Michael Meador since April of 1992.
I have one son, Chase, age 23, working as an EMT in Center and working towards becoming a Paramedic graduating in December 2016
I have one daughter, Maci, age 21 who is a senior at Texas A&M University seeking a degree in Agriculture and graduating in December 2016
I have several dogs named Sugar, Dumpling, Morgan, Turbo, Scruffy and Speckle.
I also have two granddogs named Gypsie and Cherokee
My main hobbies are participating in events that my children participate. I love sports, attending stock shows and most of all traveling. I keep the home scoreboard for CH Volleyball and Basketball Teams. I also travel with the Basketball Teams and Baseball Teams and keep the books for those coaches. I am the Central Heights 4-H sponsor, where I spend time keeping those students informed of important dates and guidelines for events pertaining to 4-H
In my non-teaching time, I love to spend time with family and friends and travel. I love to travel to big cities to experience their sights, also to the mountains to enjoy their views and most of all I love beaches. My favorite beaches are in Cozemuel, Mexico, where I try yo visit at least once every year.
