My name is Megan Abner. This is my first year at St. Ferdinand. My 5th graders have been the best welcoming committee I could ask for! I earned a Master’s in Teaching from National Louis, a Bachelor’s in English from Northeastern, and I studied in Rome at Loyola University. I was born and raised in Central Illinois (by the world’s best parents), but I have lived in Chicago for many years. Being mom to two caring, smart, and handsome teenage boys is my greatest achievement. I am grateful for each teacher and every lesson in my life. My philosophy is that hard work, not smarts, leads to academic success.
