Mrs. Debbie Aholt

I am proud to be the principal of Meridian Elementary!

 From a very young age, I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher and have loved every minute of it! My learning journey as a professional educator began In 1992 in Winfield, Kansas, where I taught middle school science. Our family moved to Idaho in 1995, and I spent the next nine years instructional coaching and teaching grades 3rd, 4th, and 5th in Nampa, Idaho. In 2004, after completing my masters in curriculum and instruction, we moved to Meridian, Idaho, where I have taught kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd , and 4th grade. In 2013, I joined the learners at Meridian Elementary as an instructional coach and in 2018, received my Ed.S in administration.

Meridian Elementary holds a special place in my heart, and I am so appreciative of the opportunity to learn alongside our amazing students, staff, and families.

My husband and I have a daughter that we couldn’t be prouder of. She will be graduating this year from Montana State University with a degree in secondary education. Our family enjoys time together, playing in the mountains, hiking, skiing, and fly fishing.
