    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 three beautiful grandchildren.

    Hello! I am Cheryl Cowan and I am so excited to be at MMS! This is my fifth 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!
