Megan Read is passionate about students learning through discovery and taking ownership of their own education. She is excited to be part of the founding faculty at Campbell School of Innovation and its focus on applying design thinking to TK-8 education.
Read cultivates a classroom environment where students feel safe and cared for. That environment helps her students become more willing to try new approaches, risk making mistakes, and further their learning as they apply it to real-world problems.
?I see myself as more of a facilitator than a teacher. I am there to guide and support students, and bring out the author, the mathematician, the scientist, and the engineer that is already inside them.?
Read holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Biology from UC Davis, as well as a multiple subject teaching credential and Master of Education degree from UC Santa Barbara. ?
