About the instructor

Meg Ross started her professional career as a juvenile court translator, helping explain the law and the court proceedings to Spanish speaking juvenile offenders and their families.

She soon saw how futile her efforts were to help the unfortunate people caught up in these court proceedings. And she resolved to try to make a difference through education.

So Meg returned to University (college, as it's known in the USA) and built on her undergraduate degree in Spanish Literature with a Graduate Degree in Education Policy and Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity from University of Colorado Boulder.

As a Bilingual Elementary Teacher, she taught English and Spanish to grades 2 -5 in Denver, Colorado for 4 years,

She has also trained university professors and student-teachers on best practices in English instruction in the Philippines while posted there in USA Peace Corps.

Meg has worked for the Pearson education products and services company on the development of an iPad-based progress-monitoring tool for English Learners.

She is currently Product Manager, Reading Assistant; Educational Content Lead at Scientific Learning Corporation.
