Hello! My name is Brandi Meade. I have the pleasure, this September, of beginning my 21st year of teaching here at Dalton Elementary School. I absolutely love my job and the families that I serve. I was born here in Coeur d'Alene and have lived here my entire life. I have two boys. My oldest attends college in Oregon and my youngest will graduate from High School this spring. I am also recently engaged and look forward to planning my wedding with Johnny as soon as COVID is a thing of the past.
I earned my B.A. in education from Lewis-Clark State College in 1998. I graduated from U of I with my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership in 2008.
I keep a very structured and routine oriented classroom as I believe that children function and learn best when they know what to expect and what is expected of them. However...I also love to have fun! I have discovered that teaching with humor, polite teasing, and a smile can bring out the best in my students.
So, welcome to Dalton Gardens Neighborhood Elementary School; truly the best school around!
