My name is: Yvette Meyer

I’ve taught at the Academy since: 2005, but have been teaching since 1981.
My education includes:
My teaching philosophy: is that every child can and wants to learn, and it is my mission to find the best ways to foster that learning.
My favorite moment since I've been teaching was receiving a letter from a student, 30 years after having taught her, where she told me she was who she is today because of the things she remembered learning in kindergarten, specifically about peace and justice! She is now the head of a social service organization in Massachusetts. She said she had Googled me to track me down!
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy attending Academy events, travel, hike, bike ride, swim, read, go antiquing, listen to jazz and drink tea with friends. I am married and have one daughter.
