About Meaghan

"Teachers who love teaching teach children to love learning" - Author Unknown

Hello! My name is Meaghan W. and I am currently working as a First Grade teacher in Hoke County, NC. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Montclair State University. I realized I had a love for teaching and enrolled in a Post-Bachelor's program at William Paterson University. As of December 2013, I completed the program and earned my teacher certification in K-6 and students with disabilities. In May 2015 I graduated William Paterson University with my Master's in Teaching.

I moved to Fort Bragg in July 2015 and immediately started working in Hoke county. With the summer quickly approaching, I would like to continue helping children. As the quote above states, I love teaching and seeing children grow and develop a love for learning over the course of a school year! I am both excited and honored to start working with you and your child!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

Currently, I am working in a resource room setting. This type of setting is for individuals that have IEP's and need a small group educational setting. Many of my students are ADHD and require accommodations and modifications to help them obtain grade level success. For example, I try to incorporate movement in my lessons to have them get up and move around instead of sitting still in a seat for 1 hour.

Elementary (K-6th)

As of December 2013, I completed my dual certification K-6 and TSD and successfully passed my Praxis exam. During my practicum and student teaching experiences, I have been exposed to a variety of grade levels including first grade, third grade, and fourth grade. With that said, I learned and applied a number of teaching strategies to ensure student growth and progress. For instance, I designed lesson plans that provided ample opportunities for individual students to succeed to his/her fullest potential. Each lesson plan integrated differentiated instruction for different learning styles, IEPs, 504s, and gifted students. Each student is unique in his/her own way and deserves an educational experience tailored to their individual needs.

Reading

One child I tutored went up two reading levels in a four month period. He was reading on a Level M/N and is now reading at a Level P. It was a great accomplishment for not only him but also myself!

Special Needs

My work experience as an Applied Behavioral Analyst for Lovaas Institute has helped to promote my success as an educator. This job opportunity provided me with valuable insight to adapting and adjusting lessons for students with special needs. Furthermore, as a paraprofessional in the Fair Lawn school district, I was exposed to one on one interaction with preschool aged children. I worked closely with the classroom teacher and other professionals to implement programs according to each individual child's needs and abilities.
