Meg McCown - Gifted and 6th Science
Science Gator
I graduated from Bishop Byrne High School in 1996. I earned my BA in History and English from University of Memphis in 2000  and my Masters of Teaching in Secondary Education from Ole Miss in 2005. Being a teacher-mom is both fantastic and crazy which is why I love my coffee. I also love science fiction books and spinning, knitting,and crochet. I will do my best to help your child find something fascinating and wondrous in Science this year.
