Meet our classroom staff.....
Hi, I'm Linda Beese.
I have been a paraprofessional for more than 20 years. I started out at Eagle Middle School and came to MMS in 2000. I have been married 39 years, and have two children, Derek, 38, who lives in Boise and Brian, 36 who lives in Meridian. I have one grandson Chance, 16 years old. I’m originally from the California Bay Area. We moved to Idaho in 1993. In my spare time I love camping, fishing, reading and crocheting. I’m a huge Disney fan!
Hello! I am Cheryl Cowan and I am so excited to be at MMS! This is my third year as a paraprofessional here and I am very excited to work with them this year.
I am originally from San Jose, California. I moved here when I was in 7th grade and Meridian Middle is the first school I attended in Idaho. I graduated from Meridian High School and attended BSU. I have 5 awesome kids who all attended Meridian schools too.
I like to read, travel, garden, and spend time with my family. My parents and all 6 of my siblings still live in the valley with their families, so we have some great family get-togethers!
