  • Meet the Teacher:

    Hello, I am Mrs. Megan Orlando. I currently teach first grade at Pine Elementary School. This is my 20th year of teaching. I have taught Kdg. through 3rd grade during my teaching career. I graduated from Purdue in 2004 and I went on to complete my Master's Degree in 2011. I am married and have three children, ages 15, 10, and 3. I have a dog named Coco and a cat named Smokey.  I enjoy spending days at the beach rock hunting and going camping with my family. Teaching first-grade is my absolute favorite grade to teach because of all the growth they make in learning to read!
