Welcome to Rose Creek Elementary!
Dear Rose Creek Students, Parents, and Guardians,
I am so excited to introduce myself to our amazing community. My name is Megan Cox and I have been assigned as Rose Creek’s assistant principal. I split my time between here and Golden Fields Elementary. I am at Rose Creek each Monday and Wednesday and every other Friday. I am looking forward to get to know each of you.
Before being assigned as an assistant principal, I spent my time teaching in the Herriman area. I taught both kindergarten and 2nd grade at Herriman Elementary for a few years. Then I helped open Blackridge Elementary in 2014. There I taught 1st grade for a year then made the switch to upper grades and taught 6th grade for a few years. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Utah Valley University and my Master’s in Educational Leadership and Policy from the University of Utah. I’m a true Ute fan at heart.
I have found a love in reading and spend my downtime immersing myself in a new book. I have two daughters at home, Maggie (5) and Quinn (2). They keep me busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My husband, Jeff, and I met in high school and have been married for 10 years. I have a great family and they are a big support in what I do.
As I have spent time here at Rose Creek getting to know the faculty, staff, and students, I am amazed. Everyone has been so welcoming and kind. I truly am grateful to have been placed at such a great school. When you see me, please stop by and say hello. Thank you for being so kind and helping me feel at home here at Rose Creek.
I love education and helping each child be successful. This is going to be an amazing school year! I cannot wait to see the growth and success each child makes.
I hope you each have a wonderful holiday season!
Parking Lot Thank You Notes
Our new parking lot is amazing! We are noticing smoother traffic flows and happier parents! Many of you have expressed appreciation so we are writing thank you notes for you to jot down a quick thank you to the district staff, architects, and construction team involved on the project. We will have thank you notes available in the office.
Learning Traits: Empathy
Empathy is the ability to identify with another person’s feelings or situation. Practice using the following sentence stem at home to help children develop empathy, “How would you feel if_____________?”
