Meet Mrs. Megan McWilliams, Kindergarten

I grew up in Prairie du Chien and attended Winona State University in Minnesota. I started teaching elementary special education in Platteville, and then took some time off to be with my 2 children until they reached school age. I began as a volunteer at St. Joe’s and now am teaching kindergarten. In addition to teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, photography, cooking, and baking. I am also an avid Green Bay Packer and Wisconsin Badger fan!
