Welcome to Mrs. Smith's Explorations Website
Thanks for visiting my site! My name is Megan Smith and I'm SO excited to teach explorations this year at Monroe! I see your favorite Kinder, 1st grader, 2nd grader and/or third grader for an hour a week and we explore and learn about science and social studies together! Inquiry based learning is all about teaching our brains to ask questions and problem solve. Your child will be researching and identifying solutions to problems and finding answers to their questions. My job is to facilitate and guide the learning process!
This is my 11th year as a teacher and my fifth year at Monroe Elementary. I have been a classroom teacher in Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade. I have a degree in elementary education from Bethel University with an emphasis in preprimary education. My Master's Degree is also from Bethel with an emphasis in differentiation. I have been married to my husband Ryan for seven years and we have an energetic, adorable, four year old son named Roman.
I believe science, social studies, and all learning should be fun and engaging and I will do my part to make it just that! Your child will have the opportunity in my class to show and use their unique strengths, use technology, work cooperatively with peers, and complete fun projects. As a mom myself, I understand what a big deal it is to be entrusted with your child for a part of their day. I will treat each child with the same love and respect I want my own child to receive from his teachers.
Thank you for supporting your child's education! Let's make it a great year!
