My name is Megan Ellis, and this is my third year at Westlake Charter and my twelfth year of teaching. I have taught basically every grade in middle school and high school, but 7th grade is my absolute favorite. We are going to have such a great year!

I have an awesome husband who really likes me, 

a goofy dog who really likes to snuggle, 

and an adorable son who really likes the beach. Like, really

I really like reading, cooking, eating sushi, gardening, watching TV shows like Top Chef, Cutthroat Kitchen, and The Great British Baking Show, and drinking coffee. Every year, Mr. Ellis and I take a super nerdy vacation to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to see a bunch of Shakespeare plays and geek out. On our first date, Mr. Ellis beat me at Scrabble, a game I am very bad at even though I am an English teacher. We haven't played since.

Parents, please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns. I would be happy to correspond via email or meet in person, whichever is easiest for you. I do my best to respond to emails within 24 hours. You can reach me at
