My name is Megan Heinz. Previously I taught second grade and first grade for five years. I am now in my third year as our Reading Specialist! I love having the ability to share my faith and love of learning with students. When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors with my husband, Jake. I have three pet rescues at home: a yellow lab named Lucy and two cats named Toby & Penny. My husband and I are expecting our first child this Fall.

I will be on maternity leave during October and November, returning early December.  My long term sub will be Stephanie Johnson.  She will continue working with my students while I am away.  If you have any questions please email her at  Thank you!

Click for tips to support reading at home:  Reading at home – tips!

Grades K-4 have access to  See your teacher for username and password.  It allows you to read, listen to and be quizzed on just right books at your level.  It can help your teacher see how you are doing.

All grades can use Odyssey for practice in reading and math.  I highly encourage you to take advantage of this program.  GRACE and St. John’s have invested a lot in this program and is proven to show positive results when used on a regular basis.  This is aligned to your child’s MAP scores and works on areas that they may need help with, and also gives students opportunities for enrichment.
