Megan Gaschler will be stepping into the role of Professional Development and Evaluation Supervisor for the District.
The district is gaining a new in-house expert on professional development and evaluation in Megan Gaschler, who began her teaching career in 2005. After seven years in the classroom, she was chosen to lead TN teachers as a Core Coach. In this role, Mrs. Gaschler trained teachers during the adoption of the new state standards. While a Core Coach, she began teaching at Dogwood Elementary School where she stayed until she began serving as the RTI Coach and Title I Coordinator of Farmington Elementary School in 2015. In that role, Mrs. Gaschler collaborated with administrators and teachers to develop and evaluate school RTI programming by sharing student success, data, and insights with parents and teachers.
Mrs. Megan Gaschler holds a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Memphis and a Masters degree in Instructional Leadership from Bethel University.
She is most excited about working with teachers and administrators to provide meaningful and purposeful professional development opportunities. “One way I would like to continue to support our teachers is by sourcing outside experts from around the country to deliver high-impact development opportunities. And, I want to continue highlighting the amazing things that are already happening within our buildings. Tapping into our teachers’ strengths’ and encouraging them to take on leadership roles through one-on-one mentorships,” said Megan Gaschler.
“We are excited to welcome Mrs. Megan Gaschler to our department. I am confident she will continue providing robust professional development opportunities. She will also be working closely with our school-level administration teams to carry out and strengthen the teacher evaluation process,” said Teaching, Learning, and Assessment Executive Director Missy Abel.
“I have seen the effect that valuable leaders can have on instruction, and I am ready to begin supporting our teachers and administrators in this capacity,” said Mrs. Megan Gaschler.
