My name is Megan Manasco, and I am the new Literacy Coach at San Tan this year. This will be my fifth year at San Tan and my first in this position. I was previously the 3rd and 4th grade Resource teacher, and am beyond exciting to be working with all grade levels at San Tan to support teachers and students with literacy skills.
This year marks my 9th 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 completed my Masters in Reading Instruction in 2018, and look forward to applying my love of literacy and the science of reading to students and staff here at San Tan.
While I know this school year will be unlike any we've experienced in the past, I cannot wait to work with students old and new, and am ready to make the 2020-2021 school year a great one!
