Last Christmas, in a fit of restlessness, I started applying to random things at 2AM. These random applications ended up changing and making my trajectory for 2019. The first was a summer job in London, which I ended up getting and allowed me to work for 6 weeks in England over my summer break. The second was an application to present at NCTE. Mostly on a whim, I submitted a proposal to speak on my most successful teaching ideas so far- The Renaissance Faire (article on that coming soon!). Two months later, I found out my application was successful and was finally going to achieve my dream of going to the National Council of Teachers of English Conference and Convention!
World traveling is one of my favorite hobbies. Having both studied and lived abroad, I've had the opportunity to visit 14 different countries and make so many of my own adventures. Settling down to a job has been a hard transition for me, so I work to make sure that my travels are never behind me. I bring them into my classroom every day!
I'm Megan and I teach high school ELA. I'm all about literature, creativity, and aesthetics!
