Ms. Meghan Mortara
Welcome to 1st grade!
My name is Meghan Mortara. This is my first year teaching in the Mesa School District, but I have been teaching for the past 7 years. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education at Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey.
I was born and raised in Verona, New Jersey and I have lived in Arizona for the past 7 years. It's hard living away from family, but my family tries to visit at least once a year. When I am not teaching I love spending time with my friends/family, watching movies, going to sporting events (Go NY Yankees and NY Giants!), and visiting new places. When I visit New Jersey I love spending time down the shore and swimming in the ocean.
The partnership between home and school is a crucial element to a successful year for your child. I believe we are a 3 person team (child, teacher, and family) and with the three of us we can help make the child successful.
I am anticipating an exciting year and hope that each student will take with them a joy for learning that will continue for the rest of their life.
Remember First grade ROCKS!!! Ms. Mortara
