Ms. Megan Headwell

  • Welcome to Fifth Grade! My name is Ms. Headwell and I teach ELA and Social Studies. I am so excited about being your teacher this year! I cannot wait for the fun that we will have together. I have some awesome books that we will be reading together, so get your thinking caps ready!

    This is my sixth year teaching, and my fourth year in fifth grade. I graduated from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, and then went on for my Master's degree in Childhood Education from SUNY Plattsburgh. I currently live on a farm in Salem, NY with my fiance and our son. 

     I cannot wait to meet you and have a fun and exciting year!

    You can contact me on ClassDojo! Please be aware that I have set Quiet Hours and any message sent past 4:30 pm will be answered the next morning.
