Meghan Waddle realized her passion for chemistry as a high school student in her hometown of Washington, Pennsylvania. Chemistry provided answers to life’s most curious questions of how things worked, what are things made of, and how things changed. She perused a career in chemistry at California University in Pennsylvania where her passion for chemistry collided with helping others understand this complex and fascinating subject when dozens of her peers asked for tutoring. Cal gave her the tools she needed and the exposure to alternative learning environments and helped her realize that teaching science is about experiential learning and fostering interest with students.

Meghan was attracted to Miller School when she was told by the Head of School to provide each student what he or she needed. She knew this special place would be the type of environment that would support her teaching style. She enjoys creating fun and engaging lessons in hopes to inspire a love for the subject. Her enthusiasm for teaching chemistry is a strong today as it was over a decade ago when she arrived at Miller.

During her time at Miller, she has coached Cross Country and Golf. She has lead ski club and bowling club and participated in many meaningful service groups including the Ronald McDonald House. One of her favorite parts of the job is that she interacts with the students in so many ways. This makes teaching them even more meaningful because like all Miller teachers, she really knows the students which makes helping them achieve their best even more possible.
