Support Lisa Leave a comment for Lisa

Lisa Megathlin was nominated by an anonymous colleague.

Mrs. Megathlin is a veteran teacher who lives each day doing what's right for her special education students. She is such a powerhouse who is full of great strength and commitment to her school, her students and their families. She embodies the core beliefs about educating the whole child: mind and soul. It is admirable that she pours her heart and soul to support teachers and their students, yet her work is so confidential, it almost always goes unnoticed. It is a very humble job to care for so many students in a behind-the-scene fashion.

"I am nominating Mrs. Megathlin because I know how much love she has for her students and her school, and we as general education teachers would not be able to help our students without her," said her nominator.

Mrs. Megathlin is a phenomenal teacher. She pours her heart and soul into each of her students. She is not just a teacher to her students, she is a mother, a mentor, and marvel to every one of them. Not even the toughest-to-teach are beyond her reach. Mrs. Megathlin builds meaningful and life long relationships with her students. Her tireless effort, dedication, and compassion for those she is tasked to teach never ceases to amaze me. It’s been an honor and privilege to work with and witness her in action. Congratulations, Lisa. I know you don’t do what you do for recognition or awards, but you are certainly deserving!

Mrs. Megathlin is one of the most self-less people that I have ever met. I had the pleasure of having her as my mentor this past school year. Not only did she pour herself into teaching me, but to watch her interact with students was incredible. She works so hard and strives to make sure that all students succeed. She embodies a true teacher’s heart and treats all of the students as if they are her own. She is an example of a motherly figure to her students and her humbleness and behind the scenes work is absolutely priceless. She is the definition of a life changer in so many ways and this nomination is more than deserving!!! I’m so thankful that I was blessed so greatly by her and her students are so blessed to have her as well!

Mrs. Megathlin works tirelessly to make sure that each student has access to every resource available in order to be successful. She has a full understanding of how the foundation for positive student outcome is set through intentional scheduling decisions. She looks beyond the information provided on paper and a computer screen to determine what each student needs to be successful in the classroom. Mrs. Megathlin has a unique ability to build almost instant trust with her students, their families and her colleagues which is imperative in creating a plan for her students that will allow them every opportunity for favorable outcomes. Lisa Megathlin is a true Life Changer for our students, and is much deserving of this award.

Mrs. Megathlin is definitely a life changer. I have the pleasure of watching her take care of her "babies" every day. She is extremely passionate about what she does, and goes about it with a smile. I am proud to call her a colleague and friend.
