Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Meghan Michals
Greetings! I am excited about this year, as I continue contributing to Southland's excellence in a number of ways. In the English Department, I am the chairperson; plus I teach AP English Language 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.
A little more about me... last year I was nominated for the LifeChanger of the Year award (see link at end). 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, and an LBS-1 special education certification from the University of St. Francis. 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!
