Degrees and Certifications:
Hello My name is Tammie and I 'm so excitied to start this new school year.
This is my third year here at Meeker and boy has it been an adventurous one. Before Meeker, I was a banker/mortgage lender for several years with a big bank. Working for a big organization you often found yourself caught up in the hustle and bustle of reaching their next goal. I would often wonder how can I be part of the solution rather than the problem. It was about the same time that my daughter (Danielle) graduated college and became a teacher at Billy Martinez. I saw how excited she got when she would talk about the successes in her classroom (kindergarteners) and I thought to myself, she was a part of the solution. It must have been alined in the stars because that is when I decided to go back to school and get my teaching degree, who said college is just for the young. So here I am at Meeker Elementary as an instructional assistant working with the talented staff and awesome students I am now part of the solution.
Who am I after I leave Meeker? Well, I am a native of Greeley, yes born and raised here and have attended some of the schools your student will go on to like Brentwood and Greeley West. I even took classes at Aims, that is where I met my husband of over 30 years, David. We have two children, our daughter Danielle (She just graduated with her EDS degree, and can now be a Principal). Our son Tylor, who I say, still plays in the dirt. He is a superintendent for a company in Fort Collins, but still operates their heavy equipment and is their crane operator. We have two furry family members Coco, our small terrier and Remm, our rescue dog, three saltwater tanks and a lot of gardens. What do the Switzer's do for fun? Well just about anything! We have dabbled in racing if it's not a funny car, ATV's or walking, we love to race. We love the outdoors and you can find us out snow bashing, splashing in the mud or at the range. We Love PBR (Professional Bull Riding) and Love concerts (country) love to travel but my most favorite thing to do is just be with my family. I don't care where it is I just love to be around them.
I LOVE being at Meeker and being part of the solution.
