Mrs. Megan Cox

After working in the healthcare setting with children for several years, I decided to go into education. I have worked with children with disabilities in the school setting and as an Instructional Technology Faciliator Specialist. I've also enjoyed coaching cheerleading, facilitating professional development, serving as test coordinator and now, as a CTE teacher for Project Lead The Way aka PLTW. 

 

What is PLTW?

  • Middle school is a time of exploration, a time when students are figuring out what they’re passionate about today and how that relates to who they’ll become tomorrow. 

    PLTW aka Project Lead the Way program is designed to provide middle and high school students essential and enduring 21st century skills. 

    PLTW is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program that uses the arts, engineering, languages, technologies, AND sciences to understand, communicate, and design.

    In this class, students will learn STEM concepts by participating in activities, projects, and problem-based learning. They will also explore the meaning of engineering by following the engineering design process.

    The backbone of the PLTW experience is the APB approach, which stands for ACTIVITY, PROJECT, AND PROBLEM-BASED learning.

Parents are able to join for notifications of assignments by sharing their email with Mrs. Cox. Please email MeganCox@johnston.k12.nc.us if you are not connected to your child's classroom.
