Bio

Meghan is currently working on her Ed.D. in Mathematics Education at Boston University as an Education Fellow, focusing on issues of curriculum and teaching practices. She also teaches an AP Computer Science class at a local public high school. Before going starting work on her doctorate, she had been working for six years as a teacher at that same high school, where she taught multiple levels of algebra 1, algebra 2, and precalculus, along with computer science. This experience leaves her familiar with state and college standardized tests, as well as the Common Core State Standards in mathematics.

Teaching has given Meghan the opportunity to work with and understand a wide variety of students. In college, also at Boston University, Meghan studied mathematics and Spanish, including a semester spend abroad in Madrid and several courses in computer science. She also attended the Harvard Graduate School of Education as an Arts and Education Fellow, where she got her M.Ed. in preparation for being a high school teacher.

Outside of teaching, and learning more about teaching, Meghan spends her time rehearsing and performing with a modern and Haitian dance company based in Cambridge. She also enjoys spending any free time she can find playing the ukulele.
