Bonjour. My name is Nadine McManaman, and I am a 2nd Grade GT teacher, here at CME. This is my 4rd year at Colony Meadows Elementary, and I am so proud to be a Tiger. I have been in the education field for 7 years, having taught 4th Grade at CME for the past 3 years. Prior to coming to CME, I also worked as a subsitute teacher in HISD and a Special Education paraprofessional and 2nd Grade teacher at Colony Bend Elementary.
I am originally from Montreal, Canada where I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Environmental Sciences at Concordia University. I am in the very unique position that prior to becoming a teacher, I also worked in academia, IT, and industry. I am definitely proof that having a degree makes a person very employable in multiple fields. I owe everything that is good in my life to my education, and as I like to tell my "Tiger Scholars", I use the skills that I learned in school on a daily basis, in so many different ways. I truly believe that education is the great equalizer of the world and can absolutely change lives for the better. This belief in the power of education is the reason I became a teacher.
I look forward to learning and growing with your child. 2019-2020 is going to be a phenomenal school year as together, we dive into:
"Learning....the incredible journey!!!!"
