Megan Thornton is a dedicated 5th-8th grade co-teacher to an amazing group of diverse students at Lake Butler Middle School. She has been teaching with the Union County Tigers for three years and loves working and living in rural Florida. Megan received her bachelor of arts in print communications and creative writing at Waldorf College in Forest City, IA. She continued to further her education by studying under the creative tutelage of patient professors at Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond in Richmond, Virginia and the University of the Rockies in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Most recently, Megan has completed her alternative teaching certification through the Florida Gateway Educator Preparation Institute in Lake City, Florida – and is excited to finally be 'highly qualified'. She feels lead toward the field of exceptional student education, and couldn't imagine herself teaching anywhere else. Recent honors include being accepted into the PEPSA program, and district nomination for Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Thornton hopes to use both accolades to assist her in continuing to create a secure, caring, creative, and stimulating learning environment for all of the students she is blessed to work with. Her free time is an adventure in the company of her remarkable family, filled with tattoos, drums, and rock and roll (and of course, common core planning with her intensive inclusion co-teachers).
