Mrs. Gloria Mesick
Hello! My name is Gloria Mesick, and I have been teaching at Lourdes for 20 years. I taught 6th grade for six years and 3rd grade for the last 13 years. Last year I taught 2nd grade and this year I have been lucky enough to follow those 2nd graders into 3rd grade. I have also taught special education in the primary grades. I have found a love for teaching science. The children get so excited when we do labs! My “twin” sister, from the University of Chemistry, comes to visit now and then to demonstrate some science experiments.
My husband, Tim, and I have two grown sons. They both got married last year and live in the area. Spencer, our oldest, teaches science at Bettendorf High School, and Patrick is a Bettendorf Police Officer. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family. I also love to ride bikes with Mrs. Rouse, our LCS librarian. I bought a kayak this summer and have been enjoying that with my friends from the Women’s Outdoor Club.
