About Mrs. Myers

I am so excited to join the NGS Family.  I am married with two children and a dog.  We enjoy spending time together going on picnics, watching movies, and going out for ice cream!  I have been teaching 8th grade English Language Arts for many years.  My philosophy in education is "Love kids... and Teach kids!"  I want all students to work hard and prepare for lifelong learning.  I strive to create an environment where all students can be successful.
