JSTEM ELAR Department Chair, Judson ISD
My name is Meghann Latimer, and I work in a STEM Academy in the Judson Independent School District. My husband is currently deployed in the Middle East, and I have twin five-year-olds – Ava and Korbyn. Online classes fit my hectic life because I am able to work at my own pace. This is my 14th year in education though I do not feel I have been “in the game” quite that long.
I have a very unique job in that all my students are either in advanced pre-AP or gifted ELAR classes. Currently, I teach 7th grade ELAR and am required to have project-based learning or make projects in all my units.
A passion or hobby of mine is reading, and most recently, podcasts – I am addicted to them as an alternative to reading due to my hectic life. I look forward to sharing my experiences with the Lamar community so that you can get a real feel for what it is like to be a graduate student in the 21st century and to let you know that you are not alone in this journey.

Do you ever have those days as a mom or dad when your kids will not leave you alone? I have many days like that with six-year-old twins. When you are deep in thought or working on a crucial part of your paper, even a small distraction can cause chaos in your brain.

With school in full swing, school right about now is getting rough. I know I forgot the amount of effort and time that online classes take over my long summer.

The webinar is by far the most important piece of the Lamar Graduate program. The webinar is the only time that you have the professor’s undivided attention to ask questions or go over the weekly assignments.

The Skinny on Online Classes

OK folks, I am going to be candid for a moment. Online classes are hard. There are no two ways about it. Please be ready to devote time and effort into this venture.
Graduate School or Not?

"You should go to graduate school," my principal kept telling me, as I would go in and out of his office on a daily basis.
Twins and Graduate School

“I can’t have twins,” I sobbed as I hyperventilated in the OBGYN’s office.
