Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to our classroom page! My name is Meagan Richards and this will be my seventh year teaching second grade here at Brinson Elementary. I discovered BME while completing my college internship through East Carolina University. I feel so lucky to have found Brinson! The students have won my heart and I feel very privileged to work with such gifted colleagues.
I have been married to my husband Chad for 10 years. We have one daughter, Joslyn, who is four years old and will be joining me at Brinson next school year. We live in Beaufort County and both commute to work here in Craven County. Our home is settled back in the woods and we enjoy doing all sorts of fun activities outdoors with our daughter and two dogs.
My husband and I have been foster/adoptive parents for three years. This experience has opened my eyes to a world of need within our local communities. One of my growing passions is to support students' social and emotional growth. I strive to make my classroom a place where all students will grow academically knowing they are safe, loved and important.
