Boevers Teacher of the Year

Boevers Elementary – Megan Nigam, Kindergarten

Kindergarten teacher Megan Nigam has been named the Boevers Teachers of the Year for 2019-2020.

Nigam began teaching in 2013 at the Rosa Parks Early Childhood Education Center. In 2016, she transitioned to Boevers and has been teaching kindergarten since that time.

Nigam credits her mom with becoming a teacher.

“My mom is a long time teacher and from an early age I wanted to make an impact in students’ lives just like I witnessed her doing each and every year,” she said. “In college, I knew I wanted to teach in early childhood classrooms because I realized what a privilege it is to help lay the foundation for early learning skills and help foster a love of learning within students. As a kindergarten teacher I get to teach all subjects to students and it is an exciting challenge to find ways to integrate subjects and explore the interrelatedness of subjects as children acquire these basic learning skills.”

Nigam received her Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Science degree with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education from Oklahoma State University. “I am a certified by the state of Oklahoma as an Early Childhood educator.”

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
