Morgan holds a B.S. in Environmental Biology from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and a M.S. in Environmental Studies from Texas Christian University. In addition, she is a certified yoga teacher and health coach and loves cooking, traveling and exploring the outdoors. Morgan grew up in Fort Worth and is proud to call it home once again with her husband and son.
Her passion has always been in education and she knew from an early age that she wanted to teach. Throughout her schooling and her career, she has found ways to stay involved with her two loves: science and education. Whether it was summer jobs working at the Fort Worth Zoo School or starting a science beach camp in Destin, FL to more formal career opportunities building a local food based education program in Amarillo, TX and a field school for middle schoolers through a Fort Worth non-profit, she always finds a way to pique students’ interests while using the outdoors as a classroom. As a child in her own backyard and all through her formal studies, it was consistently the exploratory nature of science that kept drawing her in.
Most recently she has been working for the state environmental agency educating the public and regulated entities on environmental permitting and regulations. Although she has enjoyed her time with the state, she is ready to make her way back to the classroom and use her experiences to inspire her students about real world issues and career opportunities.
As a new mom of a curious and rambunctious one year old, she has found renewed inspiration in the Montessori teaching methods, having been exposed to it as a teaching assistant during college. She feels like she has found her home in the teaching world through Montessori and she can’t wait to dive in. She is taking her Upper Elementary training at the Houston Montessori Center this summer.
