Meet Mrs. Meier

My name is Susan Meier! I grew up in Bay City, Michigan. I attended Valley Lutheran High School in Saginaw, Michigan and Concordia University River Forest, Illinois.
After graduating with an Elementary Education degree in 2003, I taught 1st & 2nd Grade for two years in Rock Island, Illinois. In 2005, I married David Meier and started teaching 2nd Grade here at Immanuel.
In 2009, I received my Masters in Early Childhood from Northern Illinois University. My amazing husband is the Director of Christian Education at Immanuel. We have three incredible children, Clara, Evelyn and Will. I enjoy reading, camping with my family, and traveling.
I adore teaching 2nd Graders!  I love teaching them about God’s great love and watching them learn new concepts every day!
