Megan is originally from a rural county in Southwest Virginia. She graduated from Radford University in Radford, VA with a B.S. in elementary education and a minor in dance. While attending, Megan met her now-husband, Charlie. After graduating she joined Charlie in Charlotte, NC where they lived for 10 years and began their family. Megan began her career as the lead teacher for a preschool program before taking a position at a South Charlotte elementary school in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System where she spent the next 8 years teaching first and fourth grade. She has experience teaching students with IEPs and PEPs as well as students certified AIG. She was responsible for developing differentiated lesson plans, administering reading achievement assessments, creating intervention plans, and communicating with parents on a regular basis. Megan also held leadership roles for both grade levels.

*AIG- Academically and Intellectually Gifted
Megan began her homeschooling journey with her oldest daughter in the fall of 2020, only a few months after their 3rd child was born. Transitioning from teaching 30 students to just one, who she just so happened to also be related to, was rocky in the beginning but soon began to smooth out. Mistakes were made, lessons were learned and a passion was created. For her daughter, it was the passion to learn new things and in new ways. She has been able to learn new skills that she was ready for or enhance the ones she already had without a grade level dictating what she ‘should’ be learning. For Megan, it provided a first-hand look into how her daughter learned and to be able to tap into that and see an entirely new side of education.
Megan is excited to not only continue this journey with her other 2 children when they are older but also to continue helping other homeschooling families enjoy their journey and make the most of it. Megan is dedicated to being a resource to both the novice and the veteran homeschooling family and helping children reach their full educational potential. Megan is looking forward to using the Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJIV) Achievement test to help give parents a clear picture of their child’s strengths and weaknesses.
