Science teacher Ms. Lindsey Meyer did not plan on being a teacher, but one class at Central Michigan University and she realized she was destined to follow in her family’s footsteps.

Before her class at CMU, Meyer originally aspired to be a Dietitian to help others with challenges similar to her brother who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 13.

“He is incredible to me,” Meyer said. “[Being diabetic] was trying for him. He was an athlete in high school and there were times he couldn’t do anything because he sugar was off and it was making him sick. His strength inspires me.”

Meyer is a third generation educator joining her grandfather, mother, father, aunts and uncles in the field.

“I was always really amazed by [my grandpa] and the relationships he had with his students” Meyer said. “He was just a big jokester, but was tough on [students] in a joking way where they just really respected him”.

Meyer was particularly inspired at her grandpa’s funeral after seeing how many students came back to pay respects and believes it was a testament to the impact he had on students. Aside from being an educator, her grandfather was also a coach. Meyers followed his footsteps once again as the GBHS girls’ junior varsity volleyball coach.

“When I got the call in the summer that volleyball was open I just jumped on it because it was my favorite sport in high school, and I loved playing it,” Meyer said. “Freshman, JV, and varsity were all open, so I thought what a good time to get in”

When Meyer attended Pinckney High School, she played volleyball, soccer and basketball. Meyer stuck with volleyball until senior year and played on club teams outside of school.

Meyer’s believes that she could not choose between the classroom and coaching since she enjoys the relationships that coaching allows her to create outside of class.

In the classroom, sophomore Ally Childers likes that Meyer’s class is engaging even though science has not always been her favorite subject.

“She’s very approachable and friendly, and I feel like she would give really good advice,” Childers said. “She’s nice to everyone even though not everyone is nice to her.”
