Mrs. Cari Pettyjohn
Hello 3rd grade families! Welcome to Mrs. PJ's class! I am so very excited to be back at Meeker School for my 27th year of teaching. Meeker was my school growing up, in fact, it opened when I was just a 2nd grader, and I have so many fond memories of my time here. I feel so very lucky to have found my way back to such an incredible school with the best staff, kids, and families. This is going to be an incredible year of fun and learning.
I have lived in Greeley for most of my life, and have taught with District 6 my whole teaching career. My husband also works for the district and is a martial arts instructor as well. He teaches Juijitsu, Judo, and is a master in other arts. We have two boys. Nate is a land surveyor with our family business, and has a pilot license as well. Jake is just beginning his junior year at CSU in Sports Management. He got an internship with the Broncos, so we are hoping for some front row tickets to some games. He also loves Mustangs and racing them at Bandimere.
We love hiking, and spend most weekends in the mountains, and traveling to where there is sand and water. I love watersports! We also have 3 fur babies. Yin Yang, my dog, was given to me by a student 12 years ago for my birthday. She turns 12 this year, and is the best dog ever. Jay and Sylvester are our cats. They are pretty special also.
Please feel free to contact me at any time for any reason. I have an open-door policy, and welcome all into my classroom. There is always plenty to do!
