M.Ed. in Teacher Education, Elementary Education and Moderate Disabilities
Fellowship Site: Lawrence Catholic Academy, Lawrence, MA
Meghan Blanchard is from Dracut, MA. She attended Westfield State University and obtained a degree in Early Childhood Education. Ever since Blanchard can remember, she wanted to be a teacher and make an impact on her students — and the world.
For her fellowship experience, Blanchard was placed in a first grade general education classroom at Lawrence Catholic Academy. Blanchard assisted the teacher in instruction, lesson planning and preparation throughout the day.
“The Fellowship program is a great opportunity to combine academics and experience. This experience has strengthened my abilities as a teacher because I am able to learn various strategies and skills throughout my coursework and apply them to my teaching right away. This has deepened my understanding of the academic content and classroom practice.”
