Teacher: Dana, Meg
Meg Krause ­ 5th Grade Teacher

Meg is in her 16th year of teaching. Her career spans grades five through eight at private, charter and public schools. She got her Master’s degree in Education at the Bank Street College of Education in New York City. Her degree is in early adolescent education, and she loves working with 10­15 year olds.

Meg has lived all of her life on the East coast ­ until July! She grew up in Connecticut, went to Middlebury College in Vermont, and worked and lived for many years in New York City and Connecticut. She moved to Santa Barbara this summer and is amazed by the beauty of the natural surroundings, the warmth of the community, and the richness of the cultural offerings. Her most recent teaching assignment was at the Riverdale Country School, a leader in design thinking, character education, place­-based learning, and experiential learning. Meg hopes to use all that she has learned to help her students cultivate a growth mindset so that they can reach their potential as learners, leaders and activists.

Meg loves to spend time with her three children (and son ­in ­law). Her daughter, Hope, and her husband, Alex, also just moved to Santa Barbara. Hope teaches at Bright Start Child Development Center and Alex works at Patagonia. Hope’s twin sister, Kate, is a third year medical student in Wisconsin. She is hoping to specialize in reconstructive plastic surgery. Son, Charlie, just graduated from Bowdoin College, and he now works for Wayfair, an e-­commerce furniture business based in Boston, MA and Brunswick, ME. In her free time, Meg likes to hike, read, practice yoga and mindfulness, and bake slow ­fermentation bread.
