I’m Meg of Browne’s Bunch of STEM

I’m obsessed with coffee, messy buns, and educating the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, thinkers, and doers. I feel like I was born to teach and have wanted to be an educator since as far back as I can remember. 

I currently teach 6th Grade Earth & Space Science but I got my roots in Kindergarten. The first six years of my career, I taught full day Kindergarten until I switched to middle school. My first 6th grade class were some of my first students I taught in Kindergarten. It’s definitely been a fun full circle moment for me.

 

Educational Background

I attended Rowan University for my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. I received a second Bachelor’s Degree in Math & Science. I can teach K-6 and Middle School Math & Science

 

Favorite Teaching Topic

I lucked into the right job because I LOVE outer space. There is something so extraordinary about being located on Earth when in comparison we are so small in the grand scheme of the Universe. Being able to go in depth in 6th grade has been so much fun.

Teaching Philosophy

 Science education is all about doing.

We “do” science by making our students responsible for uncovering concepts through observation and discovery.

Students participate in investigating different scenarios or phenomena to see how our world works.

As teachers, we stand as a guide to point students in the right direction but not tell them the correct answer.

We encourage perseverance, grit, and integrity as students push through challenging obstacles in their way.

We impower our students to make the most out of their education by allowing them to be the scientists.

Educator Milestones

Favorite Memory

 On the 50th day of school I transformed my classroom into a 50s Diner. We wore poodle skirts, made rootbeer floats, danced, and laughed all day long. I surprised the kids and played old vinyls on a record player my coworker lent me. It’s something I will never forget!

My Story

I grew up in a small town in New Jersey. I am an only child with the best parents anyone could ask for. Growing up I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I spent time helping my classmates complete their work by reteaching them so that they could understand. 

I spent a lot of my time reading when I was younger and still enjoy a good young adult novel now that I’m an adult. My favorites include the Harry Potter Series and Scythe Trilogy.

During High School I played volleyball & softball while working at Staples (I think this is where my office supply addiction began). I also got my first placement in a Kindergarten classroom at my old Elementary School, which is where I 100% fell in love with teaching.

Flash forward to college, I met my husband Chris my first week there and we have been together for over 10 years. We live in our home with our two cats Mittens and Reesie.
