BC Law School
Meg spent her summer at the EdLaw Project researching and analyzing issues in a case involving a student seeking appropriate special education accommodations at her school. She also provided informal assistance to students and families seeking educational advising, including a mother who will be joining other parents in advocating for systemic change to disciplinary procedures in Boston schools.
Meg graduated from the University of Vermont in 2015 with a major in secondary English education, a minor in special education, and her teaching license. While in Vermont, Meg contributed to research on person-centered planning as a tool to promote cultural reciprocity between educators and families from diverse backgrounds with children with disabilities. After graduating, Meg received a Fulbright grant to spend a year teaching English in Thailand. She then worked for the Franklin Grand Isle Bookmobile in Vermont, where she read books to children and promoted early childhood literacy and community engagement.
“I am thrilled and honored to be joining the Rappaport community and I look forward to spending the summer engaging with state and local policy initiatives, both through my own work and as I learn from and alongside the other Fellows.” – Meg Ziegler
