Teresa Meyer
Welcome to Kindergarten. My name is Teresa Meyer. I am a BCHS graduate. I have been teaching at BES for 29 years. I have experience teaching third grade, Title 1 Reading and first grade. I graduated from UIndy with a degree in Elementary Education and Reading Minor. I added a Kindergarten Endorsement to my Master's degree from Indiana University Southeast. In 1994, I completed my Reading Recovery training from Purdue University. My husband, Rex, is a retired elementary principal; we live in Brownstown. Our oldest daughter and son-in-law live in Brownstown with our granddaughter, Allison. Our two younger daughters attend Indiana University Southeast and Indiana State University. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and being outside. I am looking forward to an exciting year in kindergarten.
