🍎 Welcome New Staff Member Megan Johnson
Megan grew up in Roxboro, NC. She attended Meredith College and North Carolina State University, receiving a Bachelor's in Business Administration (Marketing) from Meredith and a Master's in Teaching (Elementary) from NC State.
After graduating from college, Megan worked in public relations for several years but then decided on a different career path. She went back to school to become a teacher and taught until her oldest daughter was born. When her children were in preschool, Megan was heavily involved in a local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group and held a variety of volunteer positions. Currently, she is a co-leader of her daughter's Girl Scout troop and volunteers at their church from time to time.
Megan says that she and her amazing husband, Pete, were married in 2009 and they have two wonderful daughters -- an 8-year-old and a 6-year-old. In 2020, Megan and her family adopted their first family pet, a puppy named Waylon. Megan, Pete, their daughters, and family pet Waylon all live in Cary.
In her spare time, Megan loves tennis, traveling, being near the water, catching up with friends, playing games, and reading. She also enjoys tapping into her creative side with fiction writing and watercolors and is proud to say that she has recently learned to embroider! And oh... by the way, she loves to have a good laugh! :-)
We welcome Megan to the staff of GFCC as an assistant teacher in the five-day Fours program. She will be in the Rock Stars classroom.
