5th Grade (2)


Hello fifth grade families, and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Bradley Meyers, and I am excited to introduce myself as your child’s teacher. This is my second year at Taft. Having taught fourth grade last year, I am glad to see many returning faces that have been in my classroom before and want to extend a warm welcome to the new members of the Taft family!


Prior to joining the Taft School community, I taught fifth grade in La Grange following a variety of experiences as an extended day kindergarten teacher, long-term substitute, and paraprofessional. I graduated from Houghton College with a BS in Inclusive Childhood Education with a Spanish concentration and hold my Professional Educator License with endorsements in Elementary Education and as a Learning Behavior Specialist. In my classroom, I strive to make academic success achievable for every student by creating rigorous learning experiences that incorporate multiple means of engagement and opportunities for enrichment tailored to students’ needs.


I look forward to working with you this year to make fifth grade a memorable and rewarding experience for your child! Please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or phone with any questions or to provide additional information about your child. Also, be sure to check out our classroom website at http://meyers5.weebly.com/ to find our classroom newsletter and other resources to extend what students are learning in school at home.It is my pleasure to be working with the students, families, and staff of the Taft community in fifth grade this year.
