Ms. Nell Hubacher is in her first year teaching Reading at Lakeview, having just been liberated from 13 years teaching in the St. Louis area.   She brings a love for reading, spunkiness and an ability to communicate with cats with her from the other side of our state.  She looks forward to meeting all of her new students, but mostly she looks forward to working with Mr. Wright.

Mrs. Bonnie Meyer is the Phoenix social studies teacher.  This will be her 7th year teaching and her third in Park Hill.  She received her bachelor’s in Social Studies Education from the University of Missouri and is working toward her Masters in Educational Technology.  Prior to teaching at Park Hill, she spent four years teaching a range of social studies courses at an international school in Suwon, South Korea (near Seoul).  7th grade social studies is focused on World Geography and Mrs. Meyer hopes that students fall in love with the world and other cultures,.  Students should be prepared to experience inquiry based learning with technology that engages students to interact with the world today.  Get ready to explore the world in 7th grade social studies!

Ms. Ashley Rider is the Phoenix English Language Arts teacher.  This will be her 6th year teaching in Park Hill.  She received her bachelor’s degree from Missouri State in Middle School Math, ELA, and Spanish. She has spent her entire life in Park Hill and was actually a student at Lakeview many moons ago! She loves to dream up new and exciting ways get students excited about THINKING (an essential component of a good reader and writer!). Her spunky attitude, desire for adventure, and passion for empowering students to embrace the quest for deep understanding through connected experiences that inspire creative, meaningful, and relevant learning results in a language arts class that may look different every day! So wake up, sit up, and fire up for a great year in language arts!

Mr. Chris Wright is an interesting dude, and only about half as mean as he looks.  He believes that 7th grade science should be interesting, engaging, and rigorous.  His students will use their senses to examine the natural world around them and access technology to help in their understanding of these observations.  They will keep a scientific notebook and use a variety of digital tools to document and exhibit their understanding of the physics and earth science concepts that make up the units of study.  It’ll be a big year, so hold on tight, keep all hands and feet inside the car, and enjoy the ride
