Mrs. Megan Banach

Welcome to third grade! I am looking forward to a successful and fun-filled year with you.  Here is some information that will help get the beginning of the school year off to a good start and hopefully answer a few questions you may have!

Hi! My name is Mrs. Megan Banach! I live in Manahawkin with my husband-Todd & my sons- Hunter & Gregg. I enjoy traveling & being with friends and family. In the summer I enjoy being at the beach or pool. Throughout the rest of the year I love cheering on my boys on the baseball and soccer fields.  Before coming to Stafford Schools, I taught 2nd grade in an inclusive classroom for 8 years.  When my boys were younger I taught part time in elementary basic skills programs, Pre-K enrichment, and was an adjunct at Ocean County College.  I will be your 3rd grade teacher for the upcoming school year and I can’t wait to meet you!

There are many activities to look forward to that will encourage your child’s interest and understanding.  We will read and discuss a variety of books, articles, and poems.  We will develop our study and work habits in addition to building positive relationships with peers.  We will use the Chromebooks regularly to complete assignments on Google Classroom, research, and practice our skills in math.  We will watch interesting videos and reflect on what we have seen.  Although this school year is unlike any other, I know if we work together, it will be the best one yet!  We will be very busy, but we will also laugh and have fun!

You will receive information about REMIND, a communication app that helps us all to be on the same page for upcoming events.  I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to join our class, it is the quickest and easiest way for us to communicate! If you have any questions throughout the school year, please send in a note, message me on REMIND, or email me at and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  I look forward to working with you this year to make it successful and fun for your child.
