Boevers Elementary – Megan Nigam, Kindergarten
Kindergarten teacher Megan Nigam has been named the Boevers Teachers of the Year for 2019-2020.
Nigam began teaching in 2013 at the Rosa Parks Early Childhood Education Center. In 2016, she transitioned to Boevers and has been teaching kindergarten since that time.
Nigam credits her mom with becoming a teacher.
“My mom is a long time teacher and from an early age I wanted to make an impact in students’ lives just like I witnessed her doing each and every year,” she said. “In college, I knew I wanted to teach in early childhood classrooms because I realized what a privilege it is to help lay the foundation for early learning skills and help foster a love of learning within students. As a kindergarten teacher I get to teach all subjects to students and it is an exciting challenge to find ways to integrate subjects and explore the interrelatedness of subjects as children acquire these basic learning skills.”
Nigam received her Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Science degree with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education from Oklahoma State University. “I am a certified by the state of Oklahoma as an Early Childhood educator.”
