Mrs. Meredith Hathaway
Welcome and thank you for taking time out to read my bio. I am a native Texas, born and currently, living here in Beaumont. I have been with my husband for 18 years and we have two amazingly active children. My family is my sanctuary.
Now, when I began my college journey, I was pregnant with my second child, and computers seemed to be a natural fit for me. I went for it. It wasn't until many years later, when I children were both in school that I began sub teaching. I worked in a few general education classrooms and a middle school classroom, but it wasn't until I was asked to work in the PPCD classroom that I understood what I was supposed to do with my life/career. I fell in love with each and every one of those students and will remember each fondly. They unveiled to me a passion I didn't even know I had. The one thing I never entertained was the thought of becoming...a Teacher, but not just any teacher, a Special Education Teacher. It was truly a calling that spoke so loudly to me that I had no choice but to listen, and listen I did! This journey fills me with purpose and compassionate understanding for each child that walks through my door. With the help of my two wonderful aides and our classroom's foster grandmother Mrs. Parks, our classroom embodies an environment in which our students can thrive through succeeding, failing, laughing, crying, meltdowns, exploring, learning and playing.
