Hello! I am Megan Baird and I am the new 6th grade Dean at Blue Ridge. I am excited for the opportunity to help teachers and students throughout the school year. I taught 7th Grade U.S. History and 8th grade Civics & Economics at Simpson Middle School for 5 years. I also was given the opportunity to co-teach the AVID program during the 2016-2017 school year, which focuses on helping students with study skills, organization skills and collaboration.
A little personal history: I was born and raised in the Hudson Valley of New York until I attended college. I graduated from Salisbury University in Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in History/Secondary Education and recently graduated with my master’s in Educational Administration from Shenandoah University. I began my teaching career in West Virginia, where my parents relocated, but came to Loudoun County shortly after. Along with teaching, I have coached cross-country and track and field for five years at John Champe High School. I have a cat named Gizmo who I have had for 2 years. I love the outdoors: running, hiking, gardening, and exploring new places! I’m a huge hockey fan and enjoy baseball and football as well!
I am excited about the school year ahead and the opportunities that will arise. Please contact me with any questions or concerns at any time!
