Welcome to fifth grade! My name is Megan Conway and I am very excited about working with you this year. As we begin this journey together, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself.
I was born in Pennsylvania and enjoy going home to visit friends and family who still live in the area. I attended Lock Haven University and earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a reading minor in 2006. I moved to Richmond, Virginia shortly after graduating for a teaching position at Gayton Elementary – I’ve been a gator ever since! I taught third grade for six years, during which time I earned my gifted endorsement to add to my teaching license. Eight years ago I moved to fifth grade. I love both third and fifth grades as they both have their benefits. Five years ago I started the momentous task of becoming Nationally Board Certified. I believe in order to be a great teacher you need to continue to learn new things and take on new challenges.
Teaching and learning are two of my passions, but my favorite thing to do it just being with family and friends. I have an amazing, supportive husband, and a wonderful stepdaughter, who is in fourth grade at Tuckahoe Elementary this year. I have two other beautiful daughters, a three-year-old and two-year-old. We are also expecting another little girl this January. We enjoy spending time together reading, cooking, fishing, hiking, working in the yard, traveling, and just downright PLAYING! I couldn’t tell you all about myself without mentioning my beloved dog, Nala. She is a big cuddle baby and wants to be with us wherever we are. When we are not all together, I enjoy downtime reading, exercising, and catching up with friends.
