Never Give Up
Stacey McGovern '92, two-time nominee for Massachusetts Teacher of the Year
Stacey McGovern ‘92 shared with students the ways she benefited from the life compass she cultivated at Montrose, when she was faced with the challenge of sudden deafness shortly after her twenty-fifth birthday. “I would not have been able to get through the five years of silence without my Montrose education, which taught me never to give up.”
After a cochlear implant and many hours of work learning to hear again, Mrs. McGovern was able to hear her young sons’ voices for the first time.
A two-time nominee for Massachusetts Teacher of the Year, Mrs. McGovern has joined the Montrose faculty this year.
