Mrs. Megan Felten
Hello and welcome to a new school year! It is going to be a FABULOUS year! I wanted to write and introduce myself. My name is Megan Felten, I am looking forward to teaching your kiddos Western Geographical Perspective and National Junior Honor Society. WGP and NJHS will be filled with excitement, challenges, and lots of learning. I have had the pleasure of teaching Geography for 3 years at Pathways Middle School and I am super excited to be at Meridian Middle School for my second year!
If you would like to know a bit of my background… I grew-up in the suburbs of Tucson, Arizona, Reno, Nevada and Meridian, Idaho. I went to Boise State University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in History, Social Studies and Secondary Education. GO BRONCOS! I lived in Sicily, Italy and traveled to Japan, Ireland, France, Egypt, Norway and Iceland while working on my degree. I knew if I wanted to teach about the world, I needed to see it firsthand. My passion for Western Geographical Perspectives stems from those amazing trips. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a cat named Tavi. I enjoy swimming, camping, quilting, crocheting, playing and watching volleyball.
Western Geographical Perspectives-
WGP is a semester long class. We have a large amount of curriculum to cover, but we will have a great time and make new connections to the world around us. Our class is broken into five units: Tools of Geography, North America, Central America, South America, and Western Europe. Your students will be constructing Interactive Notebooks to hold their research and findings from this class. Each IN will include a learning map, maps, focus notes, graphic organizers and experiments. The learning maps will double as a study guide for their unit exams. They will have 4 exams over the semester. I will send updates on upcoming exams, if you would like to help your student prepare for them. The interactive notebook will live in my classroom, unless they are checked out by your student or when they are preparing for their unit exams.Your student will be constructing a project for the first unit, the rubric will be sent home shortly. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me using the information below.
National Junior Honor Society-
This is my first year teaching NJHS and I am so excited to work with your kiddos! NJHS is a group of students who are leader of their school. We hope to work with the school to help families in need, provide academic help to others and build a strong community through out our school. Your student will be working to attain 80 community service hours and 80 merit points. Your student will keep track of these hours and merit in their NJHS binder. We will have multiple oppurtunities come up throughout the year to complete community service, I will keep the students informed on. Community service does not have to be anything formal, students can help a neighbor rack leaves, shovel snow, collect books for an organiation, collect food for the food bank, help with an after school event, etc. We also have a school garden, students can help in our school garden for hours. I will be out there every Wednesday and Friday unit early November. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me using the information below.
