Meaghan Raymond is excited to continue her work at Equitas Academy Middle School for the 2017-2018 school year! Ms. Raymond attended Catholic University in Washington, DC, where she played collegiate lacrosse and graduated with her Bachelors in Psychology in 2008. She worked in the field for three years and then decided she wanted to help children in a different way. She enrolled at Long Island University in New York and obtained her Masters Degree in Childhood and Special Education. For the past three years, Ms. Raymond taught 3rd grade Special Education for the New York City Department of Education in the South Bronx before moving across the country. The experience showed her that educating scholars is as much about helping them discover who they are as people as it is about academics. She looks forward to continuing to help her scholars become confident, excited learners who believe in themselves and their ability to graduate from high school and college. When not in the classroom, Ms. Raymond enjoys the beach, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.
