Psychology, B.A. Wesleyan University

Hi! My name is Megan Dolan, and I am in the Urban Teaching Apprenticeship Program (UTAP) in the Elementary/Middle division. I grew up in Westchester County, NY and attended Wesleyan University for undergrad, graduating with a Psychology major and an Education Studies minor. After graduating, I spent a year as an AmeriCorps math tutor at a charter school in Boston before coming to Penn GSE to get a master’s degree in Elementary Education. Outside of my classes, I love to dance, read, and explore Philly!
