Mrs. Rheta Meyer
Greetings!! My name is Rheta Meyer and I am an 8th Grade Language Arts teacher here at Swansboro Middle School. I have previously taught in Granville and Wake counties. I am a North Carolina native (originally from Durham, NC ) and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill (GO UNC!). I also received my Master's Degree in reading education at ECU. This is my 16th year of teaching.
My husband and I have lived in Emerald Isle for the past 6 years. We love it here in Eastern North Carolina!
I love to read and I would like to share my passion of reading with students. Reading is an integral part of learning and shaping a life. Reading can open new doors and opportunities. Whether it's reading a novel, a magazine, newspaper, news online or just a sports fact book, I guarantee you WILL find something about reading that you like by the end of the year.
My hobbies are exercising, running (6 marathons and 21 half marathons so far, two triathlons and one duathlon, lots of 5ks, 8ks, and 10ks.) traveling and watching football and basketball (Go Heels!).
Lets make this a great year!
