Hi! I am Terri Meyer, the middle school Social Studies and Religion teacher as well as 6th-grade homeroom teacher. I graduated from Howards Grove High School and then continued my education at UW – Sheboygan. I graduated from UW – Sheboygan with an Associate Arts & Science (Ethnic Emphasis) Degree in 2000. I then went on to UW – Stevens Point. I graduated from UW – Stevens Point with a Bachelor of Science where I majored in Broad Field Social Studies and History with a minor in Coaching Athletics in 2003. Before coming to CCA, I taught eight years at Divine Savior Catholic School, in Kiel and New Holstein.
In addition to teaching, I also enjoy coaching sports. I have coached Track & Field for six years with several of my athletes making it to the State Track & Field meet in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I have coached volleyball at a variety of levels since 1999. I enjoy spending time with family, friends, going to concerts, learning foreign languages, reading, and athletics. I also enjoy traveling, with the majority of my travels happen in the summer months.
In the summer of 2011 was the first time I traveled to Italy and I was playing on volleyball tour. On this tour, I went to the following cities: Rome, Grosseto, Florence, Pisa, and Venice. I played volleyball in Rome, Grosseto, Florence, and Venice. In the summer of 2012 I went to Italy for the second time, this time I went strictly as a tourist, I traveled to Varenna (Lake Como), Viareggio, Sorrento, and Rome.
In the summer of 2013, I traveled to Costa Rica; the trip was spent in the city of Arenal (near the volcano) and Manuel Antonio (one of the beach areas in the country). While I was there, I went canyoning (rappelling down waterfalls), whitewater rafting, walked on the hanging bridges in the rain forest, went zip lining in the rain forest, and kayaked on the Pacific Ocean.
In the summer of 2014, I took a cruise to the Southern Caribbean. On the cruise, the port of call were Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos; La Romana, Dominican Republic; Curacao and Aruba. When at Grand Turk I did the ATV Funtastic Tour around the island. While in the Dominican Republic I swam with the dolphins and attended a Sea Lion show. When in Curacao the excursion was Mini Jeeps Adventure around the island and Beach Escape, and in Aruba, I went to the Natural Pool Off – Road Adventure in the Arikok National Park.
In the summer of 2015, I took a Contiki European Horizon High Energy Tour. This tour was just a brief sampling of what some European countries have to offer a tourist. It was an exciting two weeks spent aboard. I was lucky enough to visit London, England; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; St. Goar, Germany; Munich, Germany; Hopfgarten, Austria; Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland; Venice, Italy; and Paris, France.
During Spring Break 2016 I took a Beach Volleyball tour to Rio de Janeiro. While on this tour I traveled to famous locations like Sugar Loaf, Santa Teresa and Christ the Redeemer. I trained and played beach volleyball at the beaches of Leme, Copacabana (Yes, where the Olympians played), and Ipanema. Then in July, I took a trip out West where I visit San Diego, CA; Burbank, CA; San Francisco, CA; and Las Vegas, NV.
The summer of 2017 was spent taking three trips within the United States. At the end of June, I traveled to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I visited the Liberty Bell and the “Rocky” Steps. I also played in the Pottstown Rumble, which is the largest grass doubles volleyball tournament in the nation. At the end of July, I took a road trip that went to nine different states. During the road trip, I saw the Field of Dreams in Iowa, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Mount Rushmore in South Dakota and Devil’s Tower in Wyoming to name a few places. Then at the beginning of August, I went to Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Washington. During this trip, I visited Crater Lake, played in the world’s largest beach volleyball tournament in Seaside, Oregon and went to Pike Place Market in Seattle.
The summer of 2018 was busy for me. I was married in July and traveled to Hawaii for my honeymoon. I also completed the Bucky on Parade scavenger hunt in Madison.
I am excited to be the social studies and religion teacher and share my travel experiences with the middle school students of Christ Child Academy.
