My Why

Hi! I’m Meg!

In 2010, I was a brand new college graduate, Elementary and Special Education degrees burning a hole in my pocket. But public schools were laying off teachers left and right. Being in the classroom at that moment wasn’t a great fit.

Instead, I looked around my military community. I saw kids with HUGE gaps in knowledge. There were students with special education needs not getting services. And there were parents, just like you, who were overwhelmed and without a friendly face to help.

Then and there I decided that helping military families and those with special education needs was what I was MEANT to do!

After working as a private tutor, homeschool teacher, and personal student aide, I NEEDED to be back in the classroom. So I taught in one of the most highly recognized school systems in ultra-competitive Northern Virginia: Falls Church City.

In 2015, life took another turn and we were headed away from my dream school. I started thinking:

What if I started a blog? I could help so many MORE people every single day!

So I did it!

Since 2015, MilKids Ed has grown by leaps and bounds.

MilKids is recognized as a leader in education for military children by:

And many more!
