Governor John Carney recently appointed 2015 State Teacher of the Year, Dr. Megan Szabo, to serve on the Delaware State Board of Education
. Congratulations Dr. Szabo!
Megan will be the second teacher to serve on the State Board since the General Assembly passed House Bill 455 in 2018. The legislation allowed the Governor to appoint to the board a former State Teacher of the Year who is also a current educator to serve as a non-voting member.
“Students and educators always deserve a seat at the table when we’re making decisions about Delaware schools,” said Governor Carney. “I appreciate the willingness of Megan to serve in this important role."
Megan is a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Resource teacher at Magnolia Middle School
. Previously, she taught science at Postlethwait Middle School
. She is a member of the National Network of State Teachers of the Year, the Delaware Teachers of Science, the Caesar Rodney Education Association, the Delaware Education Association, and the National Education Association. Dr. Szabo is a graduate of both the University of Delaware, where she received her Bachelors of Arts and Science degree in Biology Education, and Wilmington University, where she received her Masters of Education degree in Secondary School Counseling and her Doctorate of Education degree in Leadership and Innovation.
