Author Megan Bastreri
Megan Bastreri is a children’s book author and teacher. After growing up around children because of her parents’ careers and becoming a nanny during college, she tried to push the thought of teaching out of her mind. She graduated from California State University, Long Beach with her Bachelors in Communication and explored many career paths post-grad, but everything pointed Megan back to being a teacher. She then went on to graduate from California Baptist University with a multiple subject teaching credential, as well as a Masters of Education and a Masters in Strategic Communication. Megan loves learning and that is why she knew she was destined to be a teacher.
Megan is a driven individual who has always had a vision of making education enjoyable for students. Every day in the classroom she looks for new and exciting books to read that will lead to deep discussions and get the kids engaged in their own learning. She understands that teaching the core subjects is important, but truly values showing the students that they are loved, can do anything they work hard at, and that learning is fun. That is why Megan has decided to take on the adventure of writing children’s books. She wants to write books that any teacher can pick up in the classroom and read aloud to create lively discussions.
Megan was born and raised in Southern California but recently moved to Fulshear, Texas with her husband. She enjoys paddleboarding, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Currently, Megan is teaching second grade and loving every minute of it.
