My name is Megan Edwards. I have been teaching 4th grade at Plum Canyon for two years. I taught 3rd grade at Rio Vista before that. Although I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area I have made the Santa Clarita Valley my home since 1994. Both of my children attended Rosedell School. I earned my teaching credential from The University of La Verne and my Bachelor's degree from The University of California at San Diego.
The 4th grade curriculum is one of my favorites. The topics covered in science and history are of high interest. Every year I gain a deeper insight into California history and science. Did you know that the highest and lowest land elevations on the continental United States are in California and only 100 miles apart? Can you guess what they are? Scroll down for the answer.
In my moments of spare time, I enjoy the company of my family, reading, camping, cooking and visiting science museums.
Rising 14,494 feet above sea level, Mt. Whitney is the highest point on the continental United States. It is part of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in Eastern California.
The lowest point in North America is Death Valley, which is located at 282 feet below sea level. Death Valley is located in Eastern California and is part of Death Valley National Park.
