Meg Ormiston is passionate about transforming teaching and learning through the power of digital tools. Meg loved being a classroom teacher, but now she is always on the move empowering educators through her powerful presentations focused on change. Meg is an author of two books, retired school board member, adjunct professor, blogger, consultant, keynote speaker, successful grant development specialist, and most importantly a mom.
Meg is high energy, truly motivational, but also very practical. Her current research is focused on how curriculum can be delivered through the use of visual images, simulations and multimedia coupled with real time assessment to check for comprehension.
On a recent trip to Northern Ireland this is what Chris Scott, Principal had to say,“ Meg is warm, funny and energetic; you will be tired just watching her! Above all, her workshops are immensely practical, she makes you feel she knows your classroom without even having set foot in it.”
Improving student learning is her goal for every professional development session. For over 18 years Meg has planned professional development programs that meet the needs of educators. A former classroom teacher Meg addresses a wide range of audiences at all levels pre-k-16.
Meg recognizes the importance of helping teachers set high expectations and deliver curriculum aligned to standards. Her upbeat presenting style, her classroom background, and practical examples make her highly credible and effective with teachers. Her wide range of experiences and examples enrich her writing and her presentations.
Meg holds a masters degree in curriculum and instruction and uses current research and practical methods to help teachers improve teaching and learning in their classrooms.
