Hello! My name is Liz Malecha and I am very excited to meet and teach your child here at Meridian Elementary. This will be my fifth year teaching first grade at Meridian Elementary. I have my Masters in Education from Regis University in Elementary Education and my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Miami University of Ohio with a minor in Family Studies. I have taught Kindergarten, 4th grade, 2nd grade and 1st grade. This is my 14th year as a teacher. I enjoy reading, working out, gymnastics, swimming, judging gymnastics, and skiing. I spend all of my free time with my daughter Arianna who is 5 1/2 and my son Parker who is 3 1/2. I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year.
