About Mrs. Meeks
Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Sara Meeks and I am so excited to start my eighth year at University Park. This is my fourteenth year of teaching. What an exciting year we have ahead of us! I grew up in Lubbock, Texas and graduated from Lubbock Christian University with a Bachelor's of Science in Early Childhood Education- 4th Grade. In May of 2013 I graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Masters of Education degree with an emphasis on Early Childhood. I am also currently an adjunct professor at Richland College teaching future teachers in the education department.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and dog. I have an amazing husband named Justin and two wonderful boys Nolan (5 years old) and Weston (9 months old). I love to read, watch movies, play soccer, and cheer on the Texas Rangers!
As an educator, I strongly believe in building relationships with my students and families while also working together as a team. Strong communication between school and home is very important so we can all help each other. Also, I am a true believer in being a lifelong learning and to continue that I will be working with Moody Institute as a STEAM teacher. This program will help me to learn better ways to integrate subjects while teaching my students to be critical and creative thinkers.
