about.

WELCOME,

I'm Megan! 

At the core, I'm an educator and a learner with a passion for the creative and innovative. 

I've always loved words, and the power they hold, which led me to pursue a degree in English Education. Showing other people the power of words has always driven me and pushed me forward. It's integral to what has led me to teaching. 

I absolutely adore any creative endeavors! I'm a strong supporter of arts in our schools, and think creative writing is necessary for secondary education. 

Not only do I love the artistic side of creativity, but I also strongly advocate for technology-enhanced classrooms. I believe that technology is a blessing to us as learners and teachers, and should be used to its fullest advantage. Bringing technology into the classroom is what makes a fun experience become something memorable. Technology helps students to uncover their strengths and find their passions. It brings the Rainforest to a small town in Kansas and shows students how life evolves. 

My goal is to be the teacher that inspires emotion. I want my students to want to learn more. I want them to want to pursue. I want them to find the things that drive them and reach for those. 

I want to build their foundations for a life full of learning and growth.
