Meredith is a second-year Early Childhood and Deaf Education graduate student who has moved back to Atlanta, just an hour from where she grew up, in anticipation for her final internship at Atlanta Area School for the Deaf this Fall.
She accepted a research position for the summer with the Center on Literacy and Deafness (CLAD) at Georgia State University in Atlanta; the research focus is documenting the strategies educators use during English literacy instruction in 1st and 2nd-grade D/HoH classrooms. A BIG shoutout to Dr. Heather Zimmerman who taught Intro to Research for making research not so scary and something she says she is thrilled to be a part of.
When she is not coding and documenting for research, Meredith is spending her summer as a popsicle slinger all over the city with King of Pops. A great way to beat the 'Hot-lanta' heat!
If you're in Atlanta this summer, be sure to grab a popsicle from Meredith! #handswaving #GUDeptofEd
