Mrs. Jami Altwies

Welcome to our 2021-2022 school year! 


I am so excited to have the privilege to guide the learning adventure of these middle school students!  Teaching has always been my passion, although I have discovered that I am a student as much as a teacher when working with these awsome kids.  They inspire me everyday with their incredible ideas and love of learning.  

I completed my college career with a Master’s of Education from University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2010. After teaching 6 years, I decided to make a big change and move to Idaho.  It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I cannot wait to begin my sixth year of teaching in Idaho, and my first year at Pathways Middle School.  I look forward to teaching Study Skills, Maker's Lab, and 6th Grade Math Lab.  


I reside in Meridian with my husband, children, 2 dogs, and one cat.  My oldest daughter lives close by with her fiancé, and my two youngest kiddos are currently in 7th and 8th grade.  When we are not at school, we enjoy many activites including camping, hiking, soccer, baseball, horseback riding, reading, and spending time together.  I also coach CrossFit in the evening.  While I feel it is important to come to school focused and ready to work, it is equally important to Sharpen the Saw and find extracurricular activities outside of school. 

I am really looking forward to meeting your child, and I cannot wait for this year to start. We are going to have an incredible year of learning!
