Mrs. Megan Gowan
Welcome to Second Grade!
My name is Megan Gowan. I am so excited to be part of the second grade teaching team at Heritage Elementary! It's going to be a great year!
I graduated from Purdue University with a major in elementary education. I worked with the Purdue Gifted Education Resource Institute for several years as an assistant and course instructor in their Super Saturday/Super Summer programs. I taught kindergarten and first grade in Indianapolis, IN. After teaching in Indianapolis, I moved to Madison, AL and taught third grade at Heritage, then at Mill Creek, for several years. After some time in ventures outside the public school setting, I have returned to Heritage once again!
I love sports, the beach, hiking, traveling to new places, and spending time with my family. I am married to my wonderful husband, Adam, and we have three awesome children.
In the classroom, I am a strong believer in hands-on learning. Science and math are passions of mine, and I love to incorporate them into all of our subjects! I have been a trainer for the AMSTI modules in the past, helping teachers navigate the wonderful units!
As parents and teachers, we are working to develop our children into life-long learners. I look forward to working with my classroom of families to develop this love in our children!
