Megan is a reader, a writer, and a fierce advocate for literacy and learning. Prior to coming to Oakland Schools in 2019, she served for 14 years as a middle and high school classroom teacher, reading interventionist, and curriculum consultant in metro-Detroit.

In addition to a secondary English endorsement, Megan holds a K-12 Reading Specialist certification. She earned her undergraduate degree in teaching secondary Language Arts from Eastern Michigan University, and in 2012, she earned her master’s degree in reading and language arts from Oakland University.

In her work with Oakland Schools, Megan is especially passionate about supporting teachers to reach all learners through engagement, authenticity, and autonomy. She also believes it is critical to develop and support teachers and administrators as instructional leaders. When she’s not teaching or facilitating professional learning, she’s writing about it as a contributor to the Moving Writers blog.

Every day, Megan is grateful for her husband and two small children, who keep her on her toes. She’s also thankful to live in Michigan because she feels particularly at home anytime she’s on the water.
