Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Roger Higginbotham

This year I am excited to be back at Meridain High School for the 2020/2021 school year. I am currently teaching U.S. History 11 and Student Leadership (Student Council) here at MHS.  This is my 26th year of teaching.  I have been 17 years in this building and I was at Rocky for the first seven years they were open where I taught Sociology and Global Perspectives.   Before that I also taught at Lake Hazel Middle and Meridian Middle.  Before I was a Social Studies teacher I taught Special Education for fourteen years.  I have also coached football, tennis, baseball, and basketball at Meridian High.  I love sports and being active. I am currently coaching Junior Varsity Softball at Meridian High.  

I have a great family.  I am married and have two boys who both graduated from Meridian High School. One of them is attending the U of Idaho.  My other son went to Blue Mountain Community College and Boise State where he graduated this last year. I am orignially from Twin Falls, Idaho.  I attended College of Southern Idaho and Boise State University.  I have degrees in special education, history/ social studies and education. 

It should be a great year!  Looking forward to 2020/2021
