Inspiring people to Challenge the Norm

Morgan Mckay – Beyond the Lesson Plan


morgan“You guys are so awesome and always remember that I am always going to keep you in my heart” – student at Depoali Middle School

Morgan Mckay, a teacher at Depoali Middle School. But “teacher” does not even begin to explain who Morgan Mckay truly is.  To her students and those around her, shes a leader and mentor, dedicated to redefining the education system. As an ESL teacher, not only does Morgan struggle with the typical “teacher complaints” but she faces additional struggles the average teacher does not.  The students at her school struggle with abuse, neglect, and social issues.

The most difficult question she has to ask her self, is how do you motivate students who are facing pregnancy, home problems, struggles with the English language and so forth? No one can give an answer that will solve it across all students, so Morgan has dedicated her career to ensuring her students shes there to help.  Whether her class just provides a safe place, an environment that fosters education, or a mentor ship, Morgan Mckay is doing all she can to ensure her students succeed.

What I find to be the most inspiring about Morgan, is her dedication beyond her classroom.  If her students need help in other classes, she’ll open her classroom doors early, give up lunch, or stay late to help them get the homework done.  She assists the counselor to guarantee her students have safe homes, warm clothes, and get to school.  Last year, Morgan helped sponsor needy children get warm winter coats.  If that’s not going above and beyond, the fact that she teaches Volleyball at the middle school is the icing on the cake.  Any one can be a Volleyball coach, but to her team, she is why they play.

The education systems and the way Teachers are compensated is a highly debatable topic,but that hasn’t stopped Morgan Mckay from providing the best possible education and mentor ship to her students. The job isn’t one that many consider glamorous, but its highly rewarding.  Times may get tough, when all she wants to do is give up, but she knows the role she plays in her students’ lives.  She may be the only role model her students have, the only reason to come to school each day, an outlet for her students to forget about their home lives and come to school to learn. Morgan Mckay is providing a leadership that has provided a temendous impact in her students lives and has become an inspiration to all.
