Ms. Kriss Meeker
I am starting my 15th year of teaching. I changed careers late in life. I was in the music business as a publicist, I worked in television, and I wrote and produced radio commercials prior to going into education. I have 3 children- Lacy is a stay at home mom and is married to a music minister at a church in Lakeland, Florida, and they have 3 children, all under 3. Sparrow is 3, Laylah is 2, and Israel is 1. My son, Landon works for JRJ Construction in Weatherford, and his wife, Missy, is Jerry Durant's personal assistant. They are expecting twins in July. My youngest, Libby is the Women's Minister at our church, and her husband, Joseph, is the audio/visual person at our church. They have a 5 year old, Harlow. I love teaching!! It truly is my passion. But, 5 years ago, it was trumped by this "grandma" thing. I love my grandbabies!! When I'm not at school, I find a way to spend time with them. I taught Science for 11 years, and started a new adventure 4 years ago. I am teaching STEAM. It incoroporates Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math all into one class. I absolutely love this class. I hope to inspire my students to pursue a career in one of the many engineering careers available for them. I am learning along side them, and I am loving it. They are inspiring me!! To see some of the things we do in class watch the STEAM video on my page. To get a great look at a few of my geniuses, watch Meeker Genius Hours. Genius Hour gives students the opportunity to do a project of their choice and do something they are passionate about. This is one of my favorite parts of my class. I love seeing the creativity my students have.
