Ms. Megan Szabo
Megan Szabo, a grade 7-12 Biology teacher at Postlethwait Middle School in Camden, has been selected as Caesar Rodney School District’s Teacher of the Year for the 2014-2015 school year.
With 11 years teaching experience, Megan earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biology Education from the University of Delaware and a Masters of Education in Secondary School Counseling from Wilmington University.
When asked what she considers to be her contributions and accomplishments in education, Megan replied: “The most important thing I bring to both my classroom and the staff at Postlethwait is my (almost) unbreakable positive attitude. I truly think there is always something to smile about. I feel like my students pick up on my attitude right away and knowing that Room 109 is exactly where I want to be each day makes them want to be there too. I also try to run my classroom in a way that fosters my students’ confidence in science. They are all capable of pursuing science in the future. My students may not remember everything they’ve learned, but they leave my class as confident learners who are able to make observations, see connections, solve problems and think scientifically. I think producing students with these traits is one of my greatest accomplishments in education.”
