"Whoooo" is Miss McGrath?
My name is Megan McGrath and I am honored to be your child's 2nd grade teacher at Eisenhower Elementary. This is going to be a wonderful year filled with lots of learning and fun. I look forward to getting to know you and your child throughout the school year.
It is a privilege to be a part of the Upper St. Clair School District. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education along with a minor in Spanish from Florida Atlantic University. Go Owls! Upon completing my undergraduate degree, I knew I wanted to pursue my Masters degree and return home to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I earned my Masters in Reading Education degree from the University of Pittsburgh. While at the University of Pittsburgh, I also received my Reading Specialist Certification.
I am blessed with an amazing family. My mom and dad live close by in Beckley, West Virginia. My younger brother (who is MUCH taller than me) completed his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and now works in Los Angeles, California.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love art and enjoy doing crafts. I savor the change of seasons and being outdoors. I like curling up with a good book. Shopping is one of my favorite pastimes, too. I'm also a huge fan of Pittsburgh sports teams.
Confucius once said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." I am certainly living by those words. I look forward to the start of every morning - excited about the learning to take place that day. I enjoy the hum of the classroom as students are hard at work. But most of all, I treasure the smile on your child's face!
