Mrs. Chapman began her teaching career at Center Hill High School in 2012. Megan is married to Phillip Chapman of Clinton, MS.  She is a graduate of Bonneville High School and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology Education from the University of Mississippi. She and her husband are active members of EastPoint church where their motto is to live on mission with those around us in hopes of sharing the gospel. She has taught Human A&P, Botany, Environmental Science, and is currently teaching Biology 1.

Mrs. Chapman has served on several teams helping to direct instruction, classroom management ideas, and school climate. She has received several accolades including CHHS Teacher of the Year and multiple CHHS Teacher of the Month awards.  On a typical day in her classroom, you will find Mrs. Chapman’s students engaging in bell-to-bell instruction from the first ring of the tardy bell to right before students pack up to go home. Whether she is lecturing, utilizing technology, guiding discussions, facilitating collaboration of students, or having students engage in presentations of all sorts, her classroom is an energetic exercise in learning.

Mrs. Chapman has been an integral part of our new teacher mentoring program helping to prepare teachers beginning here at Center Hill. Jorga Wilson teacher at CHHS says, “When she found out I was teaching Biology 1 last semester, she called me immediately and said not to panic she had all the materials I needed and she would give me everything.  She literally is the reason I didn't go crazy last semester.”

Mrs. Chapman also sponsors our very active Student Council as they lead our student body and is a sponsor of Fellowship of Christian Students. Her students are held accountable to high expectations, and she offers her help and assistance at every turn often giving up her time before and after school to tutor.

Mrs. Chapman’s biggest accomplishment as an educator comes from the opportunity to assist a student in passing the Biology I state test, leading to graduation. Mrs. Chapman says; “The sweetest moment came from me hugging a student in the front office where she was standing with a balloon, a card, and a huge smile on her face. It was the defining moment in my teaching career when I realized that I can make a difference, even if it’s only one student per semester.”

Mrs. Chapman’s classroom is a great place to be because she understands the importance of her work. She is a respected role model and caring teacher to students. In her own words, “My students know regardless of where life takes them or what they become, I will always be their biggest supporter. I look at this job as my mission field. Every single day is an opportunity for us to show positivity and encouragement that one might need.” She has great concern for students at risk for dropping out of high school and understands the power of a high school diploma. She desires to put high expectations before her students and then help them attain those standards.

Mrs. Chapman believes that teachers, administrators, and ultimately students should be held accountable because we all play an essential role in learning.


Congratulations Meredith Smith
