Please tell us about yourself and your family:
My name is Mrs. Megan Halpin formerly known as Megan Boecker. I grew up outside of Battle Creek, Nebraska on a small ranch. Throughout my adolescent years, I was a very active member of the Madison County Needles and Knives 4-H Club. Many life skills and social skills were learned through this program. I graduated in 2006 from Battle Creek High. I then graduated from Wayne State College where I earned my degree in Early Childhood Education Unified. I had the privilege of working closely with Mrs. Karol Stubbs during my student teaching experience. I also had the privilege of working in all elementary classrooms while being a special education paraprofessional for 1.5 years. While in college, I worked at Menards selling doors and windows.
I have been married for 7 years to my loving husband Aaron. We have two beautiful children, Hunter (boy) and Myles(girl). We enjoy spending time outdoors fishing, golfing, hunting, and just being active. We currently reside in Norfolk.
What is your philosophy of education?
Our world in a preschool setting is different than a standard classroom. Our ideal preschool classroom engages our kiddos through hands on experiences that are developmentally appropriate. The students become the teachers, and share knowledge learned through past experiences. We are play based, organized, warm, nurturing, and incorporate natural and homey elements.
