  • Hi! My name is Megan Schibelka. This is my fourth year teaching and my third as a self-contained Special Education teacher at Beard. I am very passionate about teaching our diverse learners and helping each child reach his/her potential each year. In 2018, I received my Bachelor's degree in Special Education/Learning and Behavior Specialist endorsement from Illinois State University. I then went on to complete my Master's of Arts in Education and English as a Second Language endorsement at Dominican University.

  • When I am not teaching, I can be found spending time with my family and friends, traveling, working out, and exploring the different restaurants and neighborhoods of Chicago.

  • Within my profession, I am driven to providing each student an individualized educational experience that aligns with his/her goals. I am passionate about family interaction and participation and keep lines of communication open via email, phone calls, and the Seesaw family app. My classroom is centered upon small-group, hands-on instruction along with many immersive experiences including cooking, life skills, virtual field trips, and more.

  • I look forward to working with your children this upcoming year!
