K-2nd Grade Education Specialist
Hi! I am Meg Jahnke. I am beginning my eighteenth year in the education field, and my thirteenth year with the Lawrence Virtual School. I previously taught in both the Blue Valley and Olathe School Districts. I have taught everything from 8th grade science, all the way down to kindergarten. There are definitely wonderful things to learn and love with each age group. My undergraduate degree, from K-State, is in Elementary Education with an emphasis in general science. My Master’s degree is in Educational Technology. One of the reasons I love working for LVS is that we have created a wonderful model for cultivating the student/parent/teacher relationship. The relationships that I build with each of my students and his/her family are priceless!
My family consists of my husband Josh (a 5th grade teacher in the Shawnee Mission School district), our son Brooks (15), our daughter Harper (7), and our chocolate lab, Marley. We enjoy watching our son’s activities and are excited to help him navigate the beginning of high school. This year we are also getting to experience watching our daughter blossom into a confident 2nd grader. Our whole family LOVES cheering on the K-State Wildcats!
