Megan Luther—2nd grade
My name is Megan Luther and I am looking forward to an amazing school year teaching second grade. My undergrad is from Montana State University Billings and I have my masters in Educational Literacy from Boise State University. I taught second grade for ten years in Meridian, Idaho and just moved back with my husband this summer. I absolutely love teaching and my goal will be to inspire a love of learning in all our students as well.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy doing all kinds of warm weather activities with my husband and our two wonderful dogs. We try to do as much camping, hiking, running (and relaxing) as we can over our summer vacation but we love “cold weather” activities as well: skiing, snowball fights and playing with our puppies in the snow.
