Third Grade

Welcome to the Third Grade Home Page!

Megan believes that she is a product of multiple communities of love and support. She was raised in Modesto, CA and attended public elementary and middle school and a Catholic high school. With a strong desire to attend a college with a small community and a big heart, Megan attended the University of Portland for her B.A. in Elementary Education and credential in Special Education. She worked to see “Christ in her midst” through volunteer work with children and the homeless population. While studying, she had the opportunity to volunteer in many different classroom settings, mostly in Title I and underperforming public schools. When volunteering with a high school summer school course for refugees and immigrants, Megan realized that she could not separate her Catholic roots from teaching and guiding her students. She taught Catholic religious education classes to children receiving the Sacraments of Initiation and found a love of leading her students to follow Jesus. After graduation, Megan was accepted into Loyola Marymount University’s PLACE program and is earning her Masters in Special Education. Megan previously taught 1st grade in the Archdiocese and is excited for the new opportunity to build a community of learners and leaders at St. Anthony of Padua.

Don’t shine so others can see you. Shine so that through you, others can see Him. –C.S. Lewis
