Hey there, I'm Megan, a passionate teacher who thrives on creating engaging and practical learning experiences. As a special education and behavioral ed teacher, I've dedicated my career to supporting students in their journey towards independence. Armed with a master's degree in curriculum and instruction and a bachelor's degree in education, I'm here to make education an adventure!

When I'm not shaping young minds, you can find me exploring the world with my trusty pup, Dixie. We embark on exciting walks, capturing moments and memories along the way. My love for wildlife photography allows me to bring the wonders of nature into the classroom, sparking curiosity and igniting imaginations.

But let me share a little secret with you. Once I stepped into my own life skills classroom, I discovered a glaring gap in resources tailored to my students' needs. Existing materials often fell short, either lacking the appropriate skill level or sporting graphics that were, as my students put it, "too babyish." Determined to bridge this divide, I embraced my creative side and began crafting my own resources.

From that spark of necessity, the FUNctional Academics Educator was born! I wholeheartedly believe that education should be engaging, relevant, and fun for all students, regardless of their academic levels. So, I took it upon myself to create resources that not only cater to the diverse needs of my students but also equip them with real-world functional skills. I'm on a mission to prepare them for life beyond the classroom, empowering them to conquer any challenge that comes their way.

Join me on this exciting journey of learning, growth, and a few puns along the way! Together, let's make education an adventure worth remembering.
