About Mrs. Megan Ciesla...
Position: Third Grade Teacher
My name is Mrs. Megan Ciesla, and I am looking forward to being your child’s teacher this year! Let me tell you more about myself. I have three children: a son who is going to be a sixth grader, a daughter who is going into fifth grade, and a son who will be a kindergartener. I am looking forward to an incredible year with your child and learning about his/her interests. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
My Education and Professional Background
I was born and raised in New Jersey and graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree, majoring in English and minoring in History. I then earned my Masters of Curriculum and Instruction Degree from Kean University. My first teaching jobs were in New Jersey and New York, but I have taught in Arizona since 2014. Last year I obtained my Gifted Teaching Endorsement, and I am now pursuing my Reading Specialist Endorsement.
My Educational Philosophy
My educational philosophy is that all students can succeed. If a teacher sets high expectations, students will rise to them. I am looking forward to creating a nurturing environment in which your student feels welcome and will want to take educational risks.
