About Ms. Carlson
Hi! My name is Megan Carlson and I am teaching 8th grade science at O'Farrell this year!
This is my 5th year teaching and 2nd year at O'Farrell and I'm excited to be here!
I have always had an interest in animals and discovered my love of teaching while teaching horseback riding lessons at Girl Scout resident camp.
I have a leopard gecko named Gimli (after the dwarf in Lord of the Rings). I enjoy reading, going to the zoo, and tending to my plants. I've played the flute since the 4th grade and was in the marching band in high school and college. (If you've seen the SDSU Marching Aztecs perform any time between 2012-2016, I was there!)
I have taught both middle and high school. I was the 7th and 8th grade science teacher at Marston Middle School and taught Biology at Orange Glen High School in Escondido.
