Megan Webb | Resident Fellow, Orchard Gardens K-8 School
Megan Webb began her career in education as an English teacher at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland. In addition to teaching ninth and eleventh grade literature, Megan served as a teacher leader, organizing teacher teams to support students in their transition to high school. This experience led Megan to explore leadership on a broader level first as a Fulbright-Hays scholar in Thailand and Vietnam and then at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. There, Megan pursued her degree in School Leadership with a focus on School Development. In 2007, Megan joined Citizen Schools, a national non-profit that partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for children in low-income communities. As the director of Citizen Schools at the McCormack Middle School in Dorchester, Megan oversaw the expansion of the program from 70 students to 350 students. Over the last three years, Megan has worked with the school’s turnaround administration to extend the school day for all students, resulting in significant academic gains. She looks forward to the opportunity to learn from colleagues and leaders in the field as part of the Lynch Leadership Academy.
