My name is Megan Manasco, and I am the Literacy Coach at San Tan Elementary. This will be my seventh year at San Tan and I and am beyond excited to be working with all grade levels at San Tan to support teachers and students with literacy skills once again this year.
This year marks my 11th year of teaching. Before obtaining my degree I worked as a paraprofessional within autism self-contained programs and found my true passion in education. I decided to follow that passion up the San Francisco Peaks and got my Bachelors in Elementary and Special Education from Northern Arizona University (Go Jacks!).
I was a resource and self contained special education teacher for 8 years before completing my Masters in Reading Instruction in 2018. It my true calling to be applying my love of literacy and the science of reading to students and staff here at San Tan.
