Megan LaTempt

Rams Cheerleader                      

   

 What advice do you have for an aspiring pro cheerleader?

My advice for an aspiring cheerleader is to always try your best and never give up and with hard work and dedication you can achieve anything you put your mind to.

 

 Who were your heroes growing up?

My mother was my number one hero when I was growing up.  She raised me very well and I truly looked up to her as she was a very hard worker, wonderful mother and leader.  I also looked up to Dominique Moceanu who was an olympic gymnast.  Before being introduced to dance and cheerleading I was a gymnast myself.

 

What motivated you to become a teacher and a professional cheerleader

My dear aunt who had Down Syndrome inspired me to be a special education teacher. I always knew I wanted to work with people who had special needs and thought special education would be the perfect job for me. As far as being a professional cheerleader, I knew after high school I wanted to dance in college and after college I wanted to continue dancing so becoming a St. Louis Rams cheerleader was the perfect next step and chapter in life.

 

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

My favorite subject in school was English.  I love to write and read.

 

What is your favorite part about working for the Rams? 

My favorite part about working for the Rams is actually all the charity events we partak in throughout the year.  Last year our team did over 500 charity events!

 

What sports did you play or follow growing up? 

I did several different sports growing up including track, cross-country, cheerleading, soccer, and basketball.

 

Which is the more difficult job - teacher or cheerleader and why? 

Both jobs can be challenging, however teaching has more challenges for me on a daily basis which includes keeping up with all the special education paperwork, supervising paraprofessionals in my classroom, and making sure that I meet the needs and IEP goals of each unique student.
