My name is Jacquelyn Meyer, and I will be teaching 8th grade Pre-AP/ELA and 6th grade Young Adult Literature at CTMS this fall. This year marks my seventh year in education. My love of learning inspired me to teach, and with every school year this love continues to grow. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma in 2010 with a Bachelor’s in English Literary and Cultural Studies, I moved to DFW. I began teaching full time in August 2011 at Crosswinds High School in Grand Prairie ISD. Our campus served at-risk students and their families by developing highly differentiated and targeted instruction to help students earn their high school diplomas. I spent five years at CHS, during which I earned my Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction -- Literacy Studies through University of Texas at Arlington. Last school year, in order to broaden my experience, I accepted a position as Reading Interventionist at La Vernia Junior High in La Vernia ISD. In this position I partnered with 6th-8th grade ELAR teachers to target instruction for students who experienced challenges while reading. I recently returned to DFW and am greatly anticipating this year at Cross Timbers here in GCISD. My goal as an educator is to challenge my students to the end that they use their skills and knowledge to reach their full potentials both in and beyond the classroom. I enjoy watching students develop self-discipline, grit, and confidence in themselves as they assume ownership of their own growth and transform into autonomous learners and thinkers. Furthermore, I enjoy taking advantage of opportunities to learn effective techniques and strategies from my colleagues so that I can hone my own skills and improve my practice for our students. I look forward to learning from and working with The Pack this fall.
