Education is not only a ladder of opportunity, but it is also an investment in our future.
At all levels, the world of education can be a rewarding and exciting place. When teachers ignite curiosity in their students, the world around us expands as students learn their place in what can be a dangerous and unforgiving society.
I try to use my platform as a teacher as a way to offer alternative perspectives. I believe in empowering my students and guiding them towards successful futures as contributing members of our society. I am about human rights at all costs. I am about equity and access. I am about exploring and sharing life experience in a way that helps others to learn and grow.
I'm Mitchel Meighen, a Pittsburgh native and educator enjoying my sixth year as a classroom teacher. I am living in Chicago for the first time and use my personal experiences to help shape my future. I am a collaborator, an idea monster, and one day I will change the world. Care to join me?
