Before teaching at NP3, Meditz taught at Natomas Charter School Early College Academy, also known as Natomas Charter School’s Virtual Learning Academy, for seven years. At this school she taught Spanish I-IV classes, was an advisor for the yearbook and an academic coach.

When asked about her first impressions of NP3, Meditz said that she feels that NP3 is a welcoming community.

Before beginning her teaching career, Meditz worked as a scheduler for California Gov. Gray Davis.

Meditz attended University of California Davis as an undergraduate where she majored in political science and Spanish. Meditz studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain during her junior year of college.

Meditz completed her master’s degree in Spanish at California State University Sacramento. She worked on her master’s degree at night while she worked in public affairs for a large corporation.

Meditz got her single subject teaching credential from the Fortune School of Education.

In her spare time, Meditz enjoys photography, yoga, paddle boarding and other outdoor activities.

Everyone’s really happy to be here, which is such a great thing!” said Meditz. “I think it’s one of the best things about NP3.”
