Ms. Megan Reardon

My name is Megan Reardon and I have been an art teacher for five years. I am so excited to be joining the Mount Vernon community at Columbia and Twin Oak Elementary!

I graduated from Miami University in 2010 with a BS in K-12 Art Education. I have taught elementary students in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, and middle and high school students at Northwestern Local Schools in Springfield, Ohio. I am also active with Girl Scouts and recently spent time working for the World Associations of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts at Our Chalet in Adelboden, Switzerland!

Outside of the art room, I love to travel, cook, read, and explore the outdoors. I have visited 20 countries and have backpacked 350 miles (and counting) on the Appalachian Trail!

I am passionate about helping students harness their creative potential and grow in their art skills and abilities. Every student can be successful in art and will produce great things.

We will explore many different art concepts, materials, and artists, as well as making choices and exploring our interests like working artists. Check out the link on the right for more information about what each grade is learning. There will also be a link there soon about how your student is assessed in art class!

I believe in utilizing technology as much as possible to connect the art room with your home. I use the online art gallery Artsonia to share student artwork. You will be receiving an informational letter about Artsonia in the first weeks of school. You can find links to our gallery pages on the the right. 

Please feel free to email me at any time!

If you have spare gently used art supplies or recycled materials, we would love to have them donated to the art room! Here are some ideas: 
(If you have something else you think might be of use, give me a call or email -- chances are we could use it, or could find someone who could!)

  • Gently used drawing materials (markers, crayons, pencils, or colored pencils)
  • Play-dough
  • Old greeting cards
  • Recycled materials such as plastic butter or yogurt tubs (rinsed out), egg cartons, or toilet paper tubes
  • Child-friendly magazines
  • Wood scraps
  • Ziplock bags
  • Saran wrap or tin-foil
  • Baby wipes
  • Yarn or fabric
  • ...and more!
