Meighan is a compassionate trauma-informed educator who takes an anti-authority and collaborative approach to education. She has a passion for working with neurodivergent students and believes in creating individualized toolboxes for students’ needs and empowering them to advocate for themselves in their educational journey. She also focuses on rebuilding the confidence of marginalized students and igniting a passion and excitement for learning. Her approach focuses on understanding the individual learning types of her students and lets their abilities and expressions guide the learning process. She holds an undergraduate degree in English and Classics from Dalhousie University and a Bachelor of Education from the University of New Brunswick. She has three years of classroom experience teaching English, Philosophy, Sociology, History, and Creative writing. Meighan has also worked in the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs and is passionate about assisting students in university and career planning and prep. Along with her secondary education experience, she has worked in primary education and believes strongly in play and kinesthetic learning as a foundation for childhood education. Before becoming an educator, she taught yoga for seven years.
