Megan develops and supports the strategies for how Flamboyan collects, codifies, and disseminates learning – both internally and externally. This ranges from fellowship recruitment and training content to website support and designing and piloting internal structures to ensure all team members have the programmatic knowledge to do their jobs effectively.
Megan is committed to education and believes an excellent education should be a right, not a privilege. She attended Florida State University and majored in Communication Studies. After college, she joined Teach For America as an Early Child corps member serving in Prince George’s County, Maryland. While teaching at a placement school, she earned a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. She eventually joined a turnaround school in Southeast D.C., DC Scholars: Stanton Elementary, where she taught for 4 years. During her time at Stanton, she began to understand the importance and impact of engaging in meaningful partnership with students’ families.
Megan is a mother of two and a D.C. resident.
Who was your favorite teacher in school? Mrs. Trimner, my fourth grade teacher. She made learning fun and supported us to be kids and individuals. Mrs. Trimner supported our passions and interests and made sure our days were filled with joy and learning.
