A Briefingborn in South Carolina grew up in Tennessee and Kentucky; graduated from college and taught elementary school in Missouri; earned my master’s degree and taught elementary and high school in Texas; earned a Ph.D. in Texas while teaching high school and then undergraduate classes; taught undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Nevada, Reno (10 years); founded and directed the Excellence in Teaching Program at the University of Nevada, Reno (5 years); entered this new stage of my life as of January 2004! And just having a fine time!!To learn more about me than you ever really wanted to know regarding my education, work experience, presentations, awards, publications, and so forth, feel free to view my entire curriculum vitae on my website www.meggin.com. I have always been rather entrepreneurial. For example, I sold “fun flowers,” “creeple people,” doll clothes and household furnishings, candy, and crocheted vests and bun warmers throughout elementary, middle, and high school. From the time I started teaching (1977), I conducted workshops, advertised my regular university classes, figured out ways to fund projects that weren’t financially supported, and looked for new and creative ways to do things. Deep down, I always knew I would eventually have my own company…and I do! To quote the group Train,“It’s not just a daydream if you decide to make it your life.”Through Emphasis on Excellence, Inc., I am able to draw on my strengths and help build and support others’ strengths and talents. It is a happy way to live and I am thankful every day.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Meggin McIntosh and other top speakers and celebrities.
