A little about Ms. Miesen...

I have been teaching in Missouri for 20 years, and altogether for 25 years.  I have two BA degrees from Bradley University, one in broadcast journalism, and the other in secondary English literature education.  I have my MAT from Webster University in reading disorders.  I am currently seeking my DA in English Pedagogy from Murray State University in Kentucky. I am certified through the state of MO in gifted education and English Language Learner instruction.  I have taught for districts such as Affton, Bayless, Ladue, Rockwood, and Hazelwood.  Over half of my experience has been as a specialist either in gifted education or reading intervention.  I have three grown children, all of whom were identified as gifted, and they are now successful adults living on their own.  I have two Shetland Sheepdogs and one Russian Blue cat, and I care for my elderly father who lives with me.  I like to read, enjoy nature, sew and craft, and learn about science and technology, especially computer programming.   I am based out of RG Central Middle school, but I travel throughout the district.  My partner teacher is Dr. Linda Smith, who serves the high school, and the rest of the elementaries in the district. Welcome to the REACH program!
