Meet The Teacher:
Hello! My name is Meagan McGuigan, and I am a partner teacher with Mrs. Putnam in 3rd grade this year!
This is my first year teaching in East Greenwich Township, and I cannot wait to get started.
My teaching philosophy is "Fairness does not mean everyone getting the same. Fairness means everyone getting what they need to be successful." It is my goal as an educator to ensure that every student is a successful learner in our classroom.
I hope you are as excited about this school year as I am!
I graduated from Rutgers University in 2014 with my Bachelors degree in Psychology, and I am dually certified in Elementary and Special Education. (GO RU!)I completed my student teaching in the Gloucester Township School district in a 3rd grade classroom and a resource classroom. Since I graduated, I have completed various long-term positions in the Gloucester Township School District in both general education and special education classrooms.
Most of my experience has been in 3rd grade, and I LOVE this grade!
This is my first year teaching at East Greenwich Township, and I am eager to continue my teaching career in this district.
