About Mrs. Becker
Hello, my name is Maegan Becker and I will be your 6th grade science and social studies teacher. This will be my 15th year teaching here at Skyridge Middle School. Go Skyhawks!
I live with my husband Dylan, our 12year old son Greyson, our 9 year old son Easton, our 5 year old daughter Emma, and our golden retriever Rogue. My absolute favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family.
I received my Bachelor Degree at the University of Washington with a major in American Studies (and I was one class short of a minor in East Asian Studies). I completed my Master in Teaching Degree at City University with endorsements in Mid-Level Math and Science. I have obtained my Professional Teaching Certificate from Seattle Pacific University.
"Kids don't care what you know until they know that you care."
A teacher's responsibility is to make a positive impact on learning and prepare students for a successful future. This can be done through making a connection with the students. It is this connection with the students that will provide motivation to learn and confidence to thrive.
I believe that education is the key to success for young students. As a teacher, I want to motivate students in uncovering their inner strengths and abilities in order to discover what truly inspires them. I want to provide a stimulating learning environment that encourages students to trust their own opinions, while fostering confidence in order for students to realize their full potential.
