Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Tristan Mayer

Welcome to a brand new school year!  I hope you are just as excited as I am to start a new year!    I thought that I would take a short moment to introduce myself.  I’m Mrs. Mayer and this is my eighth year of teaching.   I began at Joplin as a student teacher and then was lucky enough to be hired on the next fall as a part-time 5th grade teacher.  A few years ago I did teach second grade and I am now back in 5th grade.  I’m very excited!   

        I graduated from Boise State University in 2009 so you can guess that my family and I are avid BSU football fans.  My husband and I love going to football games and we are very excited to take our boys to a couple of games this year.  I have two boys who keep me very busy!  My oldest son, Noah, just started Kindergarten this year and loves every minute of it.  My youngest, Gibson, just turned two this summer and loves playing with his older brother.

        Fifth grade is such a special year.  It is jam packed with fun activities and awesome learning opportunities.  I hope all of you are as excited as I am to dive in and learn new things.  I’m looking forward to a great school year and can’t wait to get to know all of my students and their families.
