Mrs. Meekins graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English and Government from Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania.  She began her career in the Ewing Schools in 2000 as a 7th and 8th grade Language Arts teacher at Fisher Middle School and in 2013, moved to the position of Language Arts Literacy Coach.    

Mrs. Meekins was awarded Fisher Middle School’s “2018 Teacher of the Year” for the Governor’s Teacher/Educational Services Professional Recognition Program where in her role as the literacy coach, she started and oversaw numerous book clubs for teachers and students.  Mrs. Meekins  served as the Fisher Middle School representative for the Rider University’s National Writer's Project; and continually serves as a role model and mentor for the English Department.
