Hello! My name is Megan and I'm excited to help you learn. I believe that learning should be fun and I employ active learning with questions and images to help you better understand a topic. I look forward to working with you!
About me - I have a PhD in Marine Environmental Microbiology from MIT and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. My profile picture is me taking water samples in Antarctica! My Bachelor of Arts is in Biology with Minors in Spanish and Sociology from DePauw University in Indiana. I've taught K-12 and college classes, including at Bard College.
In my free time, I like to garden -my apartment is filled with plants. I'm also learning how to throw pottery on a wheel and have made a few small bowls. Finally, I love spending time with my partner Blaine and our Great Dane named Norah. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you learn.
