Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! My name is Meagan Richards and this will be my tenth year teaching 2nd 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 thirteen years. We live in Beaufort County and both commute to work here in Craven County. We have a daughter, Joslyn, who is seven years old and will be a 2nd grader here at Brinson this year! I look forward to learning and growing with you as a teacher and fellow parent!
My husband and I have enjoyed mission work both foreign and locally. We have served in Venezuela and Haiti. We also spent four years as foster parents with Beaufort County. This experience opened my eyes to a world of need within our local communities. One of my growing passions is to support my students' social and emotional needs. I strive to make my classroom a place where all students will grow academically knowing they are important, safe and loved.
