Welcome to fifth grade Meadows Valley students and parents! I am your new fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Maret Philpott. I attended Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. My family and I recently moved from northwestern Montana where I had been teaching fourth grade for the past ten years. My son started school this fall at the University of Idaho–go Vandals!
I am very passionate about teaching and love reading and studying, especially local history and science. I am also excited to be living and working in this community because we love the outdoors, hiking, fishing, and hunting.
“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” –Albert Einstein
