Mrs. Jennifer Stout

Hi!  Thank you for visiting my webpage!  My name is Jennifer Stout and I am the 6th grade Science teacher at Merdian Creek Middle School!  This will be my tenth year teaching total, and my fourth year teaching here at Meridian.  I have always been passionate about science, especially life science, and before becoming a teacher I majored in Zoology at the University of California Santa Barbara.  I really enjoy teaching sixth grade science especially because, for many of my students, it is their first "real" science class.  I believe my job as a science teacher is to foster my students' natural curiosity and excitement in the sciences, while helping them develop their skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration.  Outside of teaching I have two young children of my own: my son, Sawyer, is 6.5 years old, and my daughter, Aspen, is 3.5!  When I am not teaching I enjoy camping, hiking, swimming, and exploring outside with my family!

This year most of the information about our class activities and assignments will be posted on my Google Classroom.  Should you ever have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me:

Thanks again for visiting!  I am very much looking forward to a wonderful 2021-2022 school year!
