Welcome to My Teacher Craft – I’m Meagan, the resident overachiever and oversharing personality behind the blog. As someone who loves to DIY anything and everything, I thought that the same concept should apply to my career as a high school teacher. Read below to find out more about me!
- I’ve been teaching for nine years at the same high school that I graduated from in 2001
- I have a Bachelors in History Education and a Masters in History Education with a concentration in Archival Sciences
- I’m working on a Masters in Reading to become a Reading Specialist
- I teach United States History, Civics, and Economics which means I see the WHOLE range of ages in the high school
- I have a passion for TEACHING the art of teaching and dream of becoming a teacher education professor at a local university
- My students know that I have to have coffee in the morning or I am a non-functioning human – it’s a phenomenon that occurs every morning
- Teaching was not exactly what I had planned in my life BUT something clicked when I graduated and I knew that I was destined for the teacher lady life
- My family and I live on a small farm with my four horses, three dogs, and more animals then one should consider healthy
- I love to DIY and have a workshop filled with never-ending, never done projects that I sell once a month a local vintage store/barn
- I’m allergic to cats yet there are at least 10 that reside on the property – all are adorable and lovable
- My husband and I met on Match.com eight years ago and have been married for six years
- We have THE most adorable and amazing little boy who was born after years of dealing with infertility and three rounds of IVF
- My husband and I commute together to work to save on gas – 45 minutes of forced talking can be a pain when I’m a morning person and he isn’t!
- My son Colt is named after my love of horses
- I’m the middle child of five – all girls!
If you ever meet me in person, I will probably repeat most of this information, share too many stories, and more about my life then you would ever want to know – let the oversharing begin!
