Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Meghan Riley. I teach English 3, English 4, and College and Career Prep. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English and History, and my Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, at the University of Michigan-Flint.
This is my first year teaching at Givhans Alternative Program. Before moving to South Carolina, I taught high school English in Flint, Michigan, and and university level courses in literature, writing, and public speaking at the University of Waterloo in Southern Ontario.
I am absolutely obsessed with science fiction, fantasy, and superheroes. Shapeshifters. Mermaids. Werewolves. Time travel. Alternate realities. I believe that these fantastical creations of the human mind can, despite the fact that they aren't real ( or prehaps because they aren't real), help us learn about ourselves and others.
I also enjoy talking to students and parents about students' educational and professional goals, and suggesting resources to help you get from where you are to where you want to be. Please feel free to email me at any time to start a conversation!
All class information and handouts will be posted in PowerSchool's Unified Classroom and Microsoft Teams. More information will be given to students at the beginning of the school year.
