Northern Middle School Teacher of the Year: Elizabeth Megonigal

Northern Middle School is excited to announce Mrs. Elizabeth Megonigal as our Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Megonigal joined Bobcat Nation as a Science Teacher for the 2017-18 school year. Prior to coming to Northern Middle School, she taught at Huntingtown High School. 

Since joining Northern Middle School, Mrs. Megonigal has made a significant impact on our science program. Her passion and love for her content are evident to her colleagues and her students. She has high expectations and makes learning fun for her students. Mrs. Megonigal structures her lessons to provide opportunities for students to connect their learning with real world examples. She cares about the success of each individual student and puts supports in place to help them succeed. Mrs. Megonigal has visited the homes of her students to provide tutoring and works with others during lunch. One of her students shared, “Mrs. Megonigal goes the extra mile to make sure we get the help and support that we need to be successful.”

Mrs. Megonigal supports Northern Middle School through her involvement with school improvement efforts and the PBIS team. Mrs. Megonigal is also our facilitator for Learning Focused professional development. In this role, she supports our teachers with integrating effective strategies into instructional practice.

Congratulations, Mrs. Megonigal, and thank you for all that you do to support our students, staff, and community!
