Meet The Teacher
Welcome to the LBCRS Nursery Program!

My name is Megan Lawless, and I am very excited for the 2018-2019 school year! 
I am currently entering my 5th year here at Long Beach Catholic Regional School.  
I attended Molloy College in Rockville Centre, and received my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education (Birth-Grade 2), as well as Childhood (1-6.) I loved learning about Early Childhood Education so much, that I decided to go right back for my Masters in Special Education, which I graduated with last fall.  It is safe to say that I am a big believer in early childhood education and love working with children watching them grow and learn.  My philosophy of education has always been to teach children how to think, not what to think.  Because of my philosophy on Early Childhood Education, I have been working on creating an environment that is bright, secure, motivating and fun for all of my Nursery students this school year.  I am both confident and excited that the children will feel encouraged to achieve their full potential in my classroom this year! 

I am also a BIG believer that children learn through play. Play-based learning occurs when children choose activities based on their current interests. Through play, children learn valuable skills including important social skills and cooperation with others.  I am looking forward to implementing this into my classroom as well!

I am looking forward to having a GREAT school year!
Please always feel free to contact me anytime!
