|Meghan is a sweet thing, but she doesn't seem to have a passion for creating
webpages, leaving me with the task of trying to fill this space with thoughts
about her. Born and raised in Powassan, near North Bay, Meghan is a northern
girl, which suits me just fine. You know, you'd be surprised at how similar
certain things are between Powassan and say, Beverly Hills. Both groups
of kids are bussed in to school, although the bus ride in northern Ontario
is probably much longer. But both buses travelled on shiny black paved roads
and both had tinted windows! Cool .... er, oh, Meghan tells me that those
weren't tinted windows on her school bus, they were windows black and crawling
with black flies! What's that? Oh, oops, and I hear that what I thought
was nice new black pavement up north was actually a solid mass of crawling
tent caterpillars on the road. Apparently the highway was closed occassionally
due to the danger of sliding out of control on caterpillar guts. Manitoulin
was never that exciting!
Wow, who knew writing about Meghan and her life could be so gory!
Apologies. Let's talk about more refined subjects. She has a degree in Mathematics
from the University of Guelph and her Teaching Certificiate from Nipissing
University. Meghan began her teaching career at Orangeville District Secondary
School in Orangeville and took on the task of coaching the school rowing
team (learning to row herself at the same time!). She now works at Maple
Leaf International School in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, teaching upper level
mathematics courses and no doubt endearing herself to a new batch of students.
