About the Teacher

Welcome! My name is Megan Costa and I am excited to be teaching 1st grade at St. John School. Born and raised in Seattle, I grew up attending St. John from Pre-K to 8th grade. I went on to Bishop Blanchet HS (Go Braves!) and then to Seattle University where I earned a BA in Humanities and a Master in Teaching degree. Outside of the classroom, I love reading a good book, enjoying a cup of coffee, spending time with my husband and family, walking around Green Lake and traveling to new places. I am passionate about teaching and making learning lots of fun. I enjoy teaching all subjects, but my favorite subject to teach is reading!
