Hello! My name is Megan Davidson and this is my third year teaching here at Samuelson. I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2007, and worked in the insurance field prior to following my passion of teaching. In 2015 I earned my Masters of Science in Teaching degree from Drake University with endorsement in ELL and reading. Being a teacher has been an amazing career change for me, and I feel so fortunate to work with all of the wonderful students and staff at Samuelson.
I also recently got married in September and enjoy spending time with my husband. We both love to read, watch movies and cheer on the Iowa Hawkeyes together! Having grown up in Urbandale, I am lucky to have my parents here in town and love spending time with my family. In my free time, I also enjoy hot yoga, cooking and doing crafts.
My name is Addison Masters. This is my first year at Samuelson Elementary and my sixth year as a teacher. I previously was a high school history teacher and will now be an ELL teacher that works with multilingual learners. I am very excited to be back at Samuelson Elementary! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, riding my bicycle, and listening to live music.
