Rarely have I seen a confluence of intelligence and creativity to the degree I have witnessed in Megan Nellen. In addition to her natural gifts, Megan has served a variety of schools, and as a result, has a rich array of experiences from which to draw. As a classroom teacher in both an inner-city school and affluent suburban school, as a curricular leader in multiple settings, as a division head, and as a board member of an independent school, Megan brings an expertise to her consulting work that is transformational. I know, she transformed our Lower School over the course of five years; I am certain she would do the same for any client.
