    My name is Michael Megyese. This is my 10th year teaching at MCHS and 25th year teaching overall. I am a native of South Bend Indiana and graduated from Saint Joseph's High School in 1985. I earned my BA in secondary education from IUSB in 1994. Along with teaching, I am very active in extracurricular activities. I am the Head Girls Basketball coach at MCHS and assistant Softball coach as well.
    I was awarded the Light of Learning award in 2006 in the Diocese of Fort Wayne- South Bend and was selected as a distinguished teacher in 2013-2014 at MCHS, two awards to which I am very proud of.
     
    I have a passion for teaching kids, both in the classroom and on the Athletic courts and fields. I believe I have the best job in the world, and consider myself fortunate to work everyday with the outstanding young ladies and young men of MCHS.
     
    I have resided in Michigan City the past 4 years and enjoy being a part of this wonderful community that works everyday to build a positive environment that our young people can thrive in.
