Hi, my name is Megan Anderson. I am humbled and honored to announce that I will be serving as Glennville Elementary School’s Teacher of the Year! Having the opportunity to excite children about learning is a passion of mine. I strongly feel that each individual student has the ability to shine at their fullest potential, but that some may need more guidance and reassurance. I am blessed to have taught at Glennville Elementary School for five years now, and I truly believe that there are days that I learn more from them than vice versa. Upon arriving the first day in my classroom, students learn that they can achieve anything that they desire as long as they put forth the effort required to reach that goal. I remind them consistently that our learning is a team effort, and that I am with them through every step of the way. One of my favorite quotes is “My teacher believed I could, so I did.” Mistakes are expected in my classroom, and we learn to build on them together to create something wonderfully unique.
I have been happily married for five years to my wonderful husband, Jeremy, and we are both native to Glennville. I currently do not have any children of my own, however if you ask me at any given time I will assure you that I have about sixty children that I love dearly! I began my teaching career in Long County, where I taught 7th grade Social Studies and Language Arts, before accepting a position in my home town. I feel that I am contributing to society by instilling values such as honestly, integrity, and responsibility in the future of our community. I am reminded of the quote “Every child deserves a CHAMPION-an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” With this in mind, I hope that my students see me as their champion, their coach, and their support as we strive to do “WHATEVER IT TAKES” to be successful in our learning.
