About the Teacher

I am looking forward to a fantastic school year! I am looking forward to working with my students as they grow and learn. Please feel free to send a note or email me at with any questions or concerns. I can also be reached through School Status, the Remind 101 app, and at school. 

Education: I graduated from Mississippi State University in May 2014. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in social studies and science. 

Experience: I have been teaching for five years. I have previously worked with children throughout college. During college, my experience with children ranged from kindergarten through eighth grade. Also, I worked at a preschool as a summer camp teacher for three summers. 

Bio: My name is Morgan Massa. I am from Germantown, Tennessee. I attended grade school and high school in the Memphis area. I graduated in 2014 from Misissippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi. This is my sixth year of teaching. This is also my sixth year at Shadow Oaks. I completed my student teaching in second grade and am looking forward to another great year with my second graders. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading in my spare time, and spending time outside when it is not too hot! I admired many of my elementary teachers. There was a unique quality about each teacher that made them special. I want to give the opportunities my students that my teachers gave me throughout elementary school. I am looking forward to a great year!
