*~*~* Meet Mrs. Meek *~*~*
My name is Mrs. Amanda Meek. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Morehead State University. I also completed my Master of Arts Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in reading through Morehead State. This school year, will be my 13th year as a full time teacher at MSE. I taught first grade for eight years and this will be my fifth year teaching kindergarten. Having experience in first grade helps me challenge you to reach for the stars. I absolutely love teaching and reading is my favorite subject.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Ryan and we have two wonderful kids. Our daughter, Avery will be attending third grade at MSE this year. We also have a very energetic four-year-old son, Jaxon who will be in preschool. They are so much fun and keep me on my toes. I love them so much! I'll miss them while I am at school, so I will need lots of hugs from you.

My favorite thing about being a teacher is getting to work with amazing kids in genereal, but especially when they get those "ah ha" moments. Students work really hard to understand someting and all of a sudden, it clicks and they get it. My heart melts everytime I see thier faces light up with excitement! Watching students grow and achieve new skills makes my job so rewarding. I also love it when my "old" students come back to share hugs, smiles, milestones, and memories. I teach with my whole heart. I make personal connections with each child and believe that they are all uniquely special. Once a child is in my class, they will forever be one of "my kids". I love my job and truly believe that I have the best job in the world!!!
