Meghan Mackay

Originally from Las Vegas, Meghan started at Success Academy in 2012 as Managing Director of Schools, after a long and impressive career in education. Between 1992 and 1997, Meghan taught literature and writing in San Francisco and Boston to students in middle and high school. She later developed educational software and student information systems; wrote and implemented middle and high school curricula; consulted on instructional design in New York and Connecticut, and trained principals in New York City. Along the way, she helped create three high-performing independent charter schools in Boston, Trenton, N.J., and the Bronx. Meghan graduated from Stanford University with a bachelor’s degree in art history and earned a master’s in education from the University of San Francisco. When she’s not reforming the education system, Meghan is most likely skiing, dancing, or playing ball with her four boys.
