     bagley  Megan Bagley
    Hi! I'm Megan Bagley and I love being a wife, mother, and a teacher! I have lived in Forsyth County almost all my life and enjoy volunteering at my church and spending time with my family. I hold a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Columbus State University. For my undergrad, I attended North Georgia University, earning a dual degree in Early Childhood and Special Education, and I have reading, science, and STEM/STEAM endorsements! I love being a teacher and consider every student who walks through my classroom door a member of the Bagley Bunch!

    Ahoy Pirates! I have been teaching in Forsyth County since 2002 with experience in both second and third grades. I graduated from The State University of West Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education. I have also earned both my Science and Gifted Endorsements. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband Michael and our dog Sadie. We love the outdoors and spend our time hiking, biking, gardening, or attending Atlanta Braves baseball games. I am so excited for this upcoming school year and cannot wait to meet our new crew!

    I am so excited to begin another year at Poole’s Mill! I have taught second grade for 5 years at Sawnee Elementary and first grade for 1 year at Poole’s Mill.  I have a B.S. and Reading Endorsement in Early Childhood Education, a Masters in Elementary Education, and a Specialist in Elementary Education.  Working with children has always been a passion of mine, and I am so fortunate that I was able to turn my passion into a career.  When I am not working, I am spending time with my husband and my two children who are ages 15 and 12.  I cannot wait for another fun year on the pirate ship!
