About Miss Megan

Hello! I have been working for the Zumbrota-Mazeppa School District since 2017. This is my seventh-year teaching learning readiness/preschool! I graduated from Zumbrota-Mazeppa High School and then received my Early Childhood - Middle Childhood Education degree at University of Wisconsin La Crosse. In 2020, I completed my master’s degree in early childhood education from Concordia University, St. Paul. I currently live in Zumbrota with my dog and coach the Zumbrota-Mazeppa varsity softball team. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, playing cards, going to sporting events and spending time at my family's cabin. I am excited to work with your family this year!
