Welcome

Welcome to my blog! My name is Megan, and I am a high school assistant principal, and a mom to three awesome kiddos. I love the idea of blogging, but oftentimes, real life gets in the way, and I don’t always take the time to put my thoughts on paper and get a blog written. But hey – that’s life!

Speaking of our life – it’s a total whirlwind in our neck of the woods, but I truly try to enjoy every second. I love watching our kids grow and develop into their own special little selves, and I love dedicating my career to the betterment of students, teachers, leadership, and education in general.

I’m an imperfect person, a believer in God, and I think John Wooden was the bees-knees. I love learning, I love reflecting, and I love trying to become the best version that I can at whatever it is that I set out to do. I’m not always successful, but I try to trust the process of working hard and having a positive attitude. I have an incredible family, and I’m so thankful for my parents who have taught me so much, and one of those things is that my own success is ultimately up to me – I’m not entitled to anything in this life, and I must work hard to earn the things that I have. They also teach me every day what it means to put family first. Love you, mom and dad.

You know what can be hard? Being a mom and being a high school administrator. Hey – I know what I signed up for, so I’m not complaining. But you know what makes this thing called life so much easier? An amazing spouse who is supportive, loving, and an incredible dad. I hit the jackpot, you guys.

Well, that’s me in a nutshell. I hope that if you’re visiting my blog, I’m able to inspire or reach at least one person through my written words. At the very least, this is a place for me to come to reflect on aspects of both my personal and professional life – because for me, the two are very intertwined, and they both define who I am as a person. Thank you for taking the time to visit, I hope you enjoy your time here!

(If you’re wondering, Ma is a nickname that I got on pretty much my first day as an AP at Olathe West. It was my email address, and it stuck ever since. It kind of fits.)
