MA, George Mason University
BA, Appalachian State University

Megan Bowman earned her Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies and Secondary Education from Appalachian State University and her Master’s of Education in Advanced Studies in Teaching and Learning, with a concentration in History, from George Mason University. She enjoyed the opportunity to study abroad for a summer term in 2004 at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy. Megan also worked as a historic interpretative intern with the National Park Service at the Eisenhower National Historic Site in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in 2006.

For more than a decade, Megan has taught 9th–12th Grade Social Studies classes in Fairfax and Loudoun County Public Schools and HSLDA Online Academy, including AP® World History: Modern, AP® US History, and AP® European History. Her favorite topics to study include ancient Greek and Roman history, early church history, the Protestant Reformation, the American Civil War, World Wars I & II, and the Cold War. She always looks forward to getting to know her students and facilitating fun and engaging classes.

For two years Megan has also graded AP World History exams for the College Board. These experiences have solidified her understanding of the requirements for the  DBQ and LEQ essays, which has helped her to better prepare students for the AP Exam. Additionally, Megan has participated in workshops hosted by College Board for both AP European History and AP World History Modern to gain a deeper understanding of how the courses are organized and how to teach the historical thinking skills and content more effectively to students.

Megan lives in West Virginia with her husband and their three daughters. In her free time, she enjoys reading, running, hiking, playing guitar, baking, and spending time with family, friends, and their beagle, Bella.

Megan has been teaching with the Academy since 2015 and is very excited to be teaching again with HSLDA Online Academy this academic year.
