Ms. Meghan Michals

Greetings!  I am excited about this year, as I continue contributing to Southland's excellence in a number of ways.  I teach AP English Language and Composition and AP Literature and Composition.  I also serve as 9th Grade On Track Coordinator.  In this position, I provide freshmen with the tools and support necessary to help them transition into high school and sustain high levels of academic, social, and emotional success. Within the district, I am an instructional coach.

My educational background includes a bachelor of art in English with a focus in writing from the University of Illinois at Chicago, a masters degree in education from National Louis University, an LBS-1 special education certification from the University of St. Francis, training in trauma-sensitive classroom strategies and restorative practices.  In addition to my background in education, I have also studied many avenues of holistic wellness, such as mindfulness, yoga and meditation.  I am a certified yoga instructor - with a specialization in trauma-sensitive practices - and I am a clinical hypnotherapist.   

Please visit my page for updates on classes and activities. I look forward to a great year!
