Meagen Gardner is from Sunnyside, Washington.  She has been married to her husband Avery Gardner since 2016.  Some of Señora Gardner’s passions in life are Spanish, reading, board games and movies. 

Teaching and learning are also very important to her and she believes that education can truly make a difference in the world. She loves connecting with her students and seeing them understand concepts and grow. 

Around 5 years ago Señora Gardner started her journey of learning Spanish while living in Guatemala and Honduras. She had always wanted to learn Spanish and received the opportunity to do so first hand. Since then she fell in love with the language and wanted to keep learning and using it and decided to teach the language so she could always be around it. Señora Gardner graduated from BYU-Idaho in 2018 with a BA in Spanish Education.

Señora Gardner has always loved school and learning and feels most relaxed grading papers and learning new things about the Spanish language. She loves seeing a student understand a difficult concept and figuring out new and engaging ways to teach student. She is excited to share her love of Spanish as the Spanish teacher for the MYP at Alturas International Academy.
