Meredith McNerney

Meredith is a speaker, teacher, and the author of two books: "Cultivating a Classroom of Calm: How to Promote Student Engagement and Self-Regulation," published by ASCD, and "Facing Cancer: A Spiritual Journey from Pain to Peace."

As a principal, ninety percent of her students were eligible for free meals, and 78% spoke English as a second language. Meredith and her team adopted a comprehensive strategy for school improvement, focusing on optimizing structures and processes. This included implementing accountability frameworks and best practices to enhance social-emotional well-being alongside improving student academic performance.

Today Meredith works with schools and businesses across the country to teach others how to cultivate calmer environments. Meredith is finishing a doctoral program at Northeastern University where she studies the mental health of black and brown educators.
