Megan Otero joined St. Joan Antida High School as Principal in June 2020. Otero most recently served as the Academic Dean for Notre Dame School of Milwaukee. She firmly believes in the solid foundation that a Catholic education provides for all students and values the all-girl learning environment. Through her own experience, she understands the formative role both traits have played in her own life. Otero has experienced the hallmarks of a Catholic education from the standpoint of student, teacher, and administrator. Otero graduated from Divine Savior Holy Angels High School in Milwaukee and went on to attend the University of Notre Dame, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in biology, a Master of Education degree, and most recently a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership.
Otero has experience teaching in the United States and abroad as she has taught in South Bend, Oklahoma City, Santiago, Chile, and most recently at Notre Dame School of Milwaukee. During her time with Notre Dame School of Milwaukee, Otero taught science, social studies, and algebra to middle school students before becoming the school’s academic dean. “Megan’s extensive teaching experience, commitment to Catholic education and experience working with diverse student populations all stood out to us in the interview process,” said Marikris Coryell, President of SJA. “Her passion to make a difference in the lives of young women in Milwaukee will guide her leadership as we work together to continuously build a stronger SJA for the students and families we serve.”
