Merideth Ostrer

8th Grade Humanities Teacher

Merideth Ostrer, Eighth Grade Humanities Teacher, is thrilled to be joining the team at Prospect Sierra this year. Born in Berkeley, raised in North Carolina, and then shivering through college at Middlebury and graduate school at Northeastern, she’s happy to trade snow days for the steady temperatures of the Bay Area. Merideth is beginning her fourteenth year as a middle school teacher, having taught a range of history courses from ancient and medieval history, to U.S. political and social history to contemporary world history. She adores the perspective, humor and interests of middle school students, and has developed a deep appreciation for the elementary school years through her daughters, who will be joining the second and fourth grades at Prospect Sierra.
