Miss Megan Meyer
Miss Megan Meyer joined the SKDS staff in 2011. Prior to coming to SKDS, Miss Meyer taught 4K at St. Catherine School in Milwaukee for one year. Currently she teaches first grade. Megan attended St. Norbert College and graduated with an Elementary Education major with Early Childhood Education and Spanish teaching minors.
Miss Meyer is originally from Fond du Lac, WI. She loves spending time with her family; especially her niece and nephew. "They grow up so fast," says Miss Meyer. Her hobbies include reading, shopping, music, and movies. She's a big movie buff.
When asked why she became a teacher, Miss Meyer replied, "As a kid, I constantly played school with my cousins and I always loved spending time with kids. I think teaching was something I wanted to do, but never fully realized it until I began helping teach computer classes through a volunteer program in high school. It was a truly rewarding experience."
Megan says her favorite thing about her job is she loves watching the progress as students learn to read, write stories, and become problem solvers.
Her words of advice for students are: "The word 'can't' should not be in your vocabulary. If you put your mind to it, anything is possible.
Her favorite quotations are: "The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery." -Mark van Doren
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." - Maya Angelou
