My Top 3 Priorities

  • Student Wellness and Safety
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Extend Community Partnerships



6th Grade Math/Science Teacher, Redondo Beach Unified School District (2015–current)


University of Southern California Master of Public Administration (current)
Pepperdine University Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Master of Arts in Education (2015)
UCLA Bachelor of Arts, Geography/Environmental Studies (2014)



Megan Crawford is a lifelong resident of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Attending Rancho Vista Elementary School, Miraleste Intermediate School, and Palos Verdes Peninsula High School, Megan is a testament to the high standard of education offered by the District. With the strong educational background Megan received in the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District (PVPUSD), she continued on to obtain an AA degree from Marymount California University, followed by a BA in Environmental Studies and Geography from UCLA,  then an MA (Master of Arts) in Education from Pepperdine University. Aiming to further her education even more, Megan is now enrolled in the MPA (Master of Public Administration) program at USC.




Inspired by her years enrolled in the PVPUSD, Megan has devoted her career to education and is currently a teacher for the Redondo Beach Unified School District. Additionally, she has advocated for public school education by being a California delegate at the annual NEA Representative Assembly. Her personal relationship to PVPUSD, combined with her educational background and experience in the field, gives Megan the unique perspective needed to maximize the potential that lies within PVPUSD. Megan also believes in the younger generation making a difference in the world, and her enthusiastic energy and new ideas will also contribute to diversity on the School Board. Megan hopes to incorporate the wealth of knowledge she has accumulated into a plan for the district that prioritizes student wellbeing, community impact, and a balanced budget, all while maintaining the standard of excellence attributed to PVPUSD Schools.




Megan understands that the ties between the Palos Verdes community and the school district are of the utmost importance, and nurturing a relationship between the two is essential. She believes that students should be engaging with our beautiful coastal community and that transparency and trust must be maintained. For Megan, fostering student and community growth is always the end game.
