My Bio

Meet Ms. DeLaney!
 
My name is Megan DeLaney, and I am from Toledo, Ohio.  This is my 16th year of teaching, and my 9th year teaching at IHM.  Growing up, I was inspired to be a teacher through helping my mom in her classroom, as well as working with children through volunteer programs.  I attended Xavier University, where I received my B.S. in Early Childhood Education.  
 
The first half of my teaching career was spent in the Archdiocese of Boston.  After graduating from Xavier, I moved to Boston, where I was privileged to participate in a teaching service program as a member of the Urban Catholic Teacher Corps (UCTC) of Boston College.  While in UCTC, I started the Pre-K program in an inner-city Catholic school in Boston, and I earned my M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Boston College.  My time in UCTC ignited a passion within me to work my hardest to provide the best early education possible for my students, and I also developed a strong dedication towards the mission of Catholic education.  While in Boston, I taught Pre-K for 4 years, and then I went on to teach Kindergarten at another inner-city Catholic school in Boston for 3 years.  My journey after Boston brought me to Cincinnati as a member of the wonderful community here at IHM.
 
I feel blessed to be here at IHM, where the students are inspiring and families offer the kindest support!  My favorite thing about teaching is helping the students I teach to grow and succeed.  Each student comes to first grade at the beginning of the year with so much potential to learn and grow.  I feel privileged to not only help make that learning come alive, but to get to know the students along their path of growing in first grade.  
 
Outside of school, I enjoy baking, running, and spending time with my family and dog.  I am a 9 time marathon runner, and I recently achieved a huge goal of running the Boston Marathon this past April.  I have found great joy in achieving goals through training and racing!  This past summer, I got married to my wonderful husband, Brad and traveled to Hawaii.
 
I am excited for the year ahead with your children!
