About The Teacher
My name is Megan Nowak and I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Monte Vista! I was born and raised in New Jersey but spent 6 years in upstate New York. I received my BA in Psychology and became NY certified in Elementary Education from Wells College in 2008 and received my Masters of Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2009. In New York I taught 5th- 8th all subjects and 6th grade Math. This will be my eigth year of teaching, time travels fast when you're having fun!
Three years ago, my husband and I decided to move to Arizona so that he could attend ASU to receive his Ph.D. in Music Education. We love the beautiful warm climate here in Arizona, especially the fact that there’s no snow! We also have a 15 month old, named Benjamin. I love watching him learn new things and explore the world.
In my free time I love spending time with family and friends, watching sports (especially the Yankees), dancing, reading and traveling. I’ve loved exploring Arizona and I am looking forward to continuing to travel and learn more about the Southwest. Suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
