HCSD Teacher Wins State Science Award

HCSD Teacher Wins State Science Teacher of Year Honor

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (October 12, 2021) – A Harrison County School District teacher has been named the 2021 Outstanding High School Science Teacher of the Year by the Mississippi Science Teachers Association!

Mrs. Megan Brooks is a Biology and Dual Credit Biology teacher at West Harrison High School. She has eight years of teaching experience, with three of those being in the Harrison County School District at WHHS. Having graduated from a Harrison County school, Mrs. Brooks feels great pride to be back in the district.

Mrs. Brooks received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education from The University of Southern Mississippi and a Master of Science in Education from William Carey University. She is professionally certified in general science in grades 7-12 and teaches students of all levels, from those learning at the youngest level, Foundations of Biology, to those learning at the highest level, college Biology I and II. She is also involved with numerous school committees and is a West Harrison junior high softball coach.

In her classroom, Mrs. Brooks celebrates divergent thinking. She creates a learning environment that her students feel intellectually, but meaningfully, challenged. Rather than avoid change, she embraces it by finding more innovative and creative ways to engage and encourage her students in the field of science. Mrs. Brooks is loyal and dedicated to her students at WHHS, and she will always provide them with a safe place to learn, grow, and succeed.

When she is not creating in the classroom or giving it all on the field, Mrs. Brooks enjoys spending her free time with her family. Mrs. Brooks is married to Alison Brooks and has three dogs. Mrs. Brooks will receive her award at the MSTA Conference in 2022. Congratulations to Mrs. Brooks on this distinguished recognition!
