My name is Megan Jerkovic and I have been teaching since 2010. After earning my degree from San Diego State, I earned my credentials (multiple subject and math single subject) at Chico State. I taught two years in a middle school in Southern California and then moved to BVUSD in 2012. After 4 years at Strawberry and a two year leave of absence, I’m thrilled to be joining the Yulupa crew.
I have extended family here in Santa Rosa, but I grew up in Chico where my mom was also a second grade teacher. I met my husband, Adi, when I was only 20 years old and we have had two beautiful daughters, with another one on the way (Sept 2018). We also have a fur-child, Peanut, who is a Chihuahua/Dachshund and we adore her, as well.
Learning should be fun! I believe in hands-on, experiential teaching, whenever possible. I promote academic discourse and authentic conversations between students and teachers in an effort to create an environment where we can all learn from each other. I encourage curiosity, cooperation, responsibility and laughter. Teaching is the best job on the planet and I feel blessed to be able to do it as a career!
