Welcome to first grade! My name is Courtney Meyer. I have been teaching first grade at Alta Vista since 2001. My mom was a first grade teacher in Hermosa Beach. It must run in the family. I feel so fortunate to teach and live in this community. We have the best parents, teachers, and staff.
I grew up in Huntington Beach, which reminds me so much of why I love the South Bay. I received my BA at the University of California at Santa Barbara and my masters and teaching credential at the University of California at Irvine.
My husband and I along with our two kids live locally and enjoy the beach, taking hikes, and traveling. My daughter, Chloe, and son, Charlie, attend Alta Vista and I couldn't be happier because I know they are getting the best education possible. They will be ready for middle school. high school, and beyond.
I enjoy reading, yoga, and working out at Orangetheory. You will see me in the morning dropping off my own kids at their classrooms and then greeting my students into my classroom. We start each day saying good morning to each other. My goal is to make each child feel special and help them to reach their very best.
