Mrs. Meersman

I have a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from Governors State University. I went back to school for my teaching certificate also from Governors State University. I am certified to teach Math and the Social Sciences.

Education here.


6th-8th Grade S. Science/History

What’s happening in Science and Social Studies this year?

I am excited to start a new school year.  This will be my second year teaching Science and Social Studies.  I’m an avid history buff and hope that my “love of all things history” will help me to instill a love of learning the subject to my students.  Science was very hands on last year and I’m looking forward to continuing to enrich the Science curriculum here at Union.

Social Studies

In 6th Grade Social Studies we will be studying World History where we will study the civilizations form Egypt, India, China, Greece, Rome, and the world.

In 7th and 8th Grade we will return to American History beginning where we left off in 5th grade to the present.  Study will include readings, projects, discussions and debates.


During our time in Science from 6th to 8th grade students will study different aspects of Earth and Space Science, Physical Science and Life Science.  Study will include experiments, research, and projects to develop our understanding of the topics.
