Hi and Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Megan Melega and I will be your child's First Grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year, as Mrs. Arnao will be out on maternity leave! I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with my Bachelor's Degree in both Psychology and Sociology in 2014. I then proceeded to enter into Stockton University's Teacher Education Program, where I completed my degree in May 2017. At Stockton, I received my Teaching Certification in Elementary Education with a Specialization in Middle School Science.
I had the pleasure of growing up in North Beach on Long Beach Island and am beyond thrilled to be returning to the Long Beach Island School District. I'm very excited to have been given the amazing opportunity to teach in the same school district that made me fall in love with learning from a very young age. It is my goal to help all of my students develop the same love for learning that I did while at Ethel Jacobsen Elementary School. I plan to do this by creating a safe, productive, and engaging learning environment with your child where they can grown academically, socially, and emotionally.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me!
