Prof. Meg Carroll, Ed.D., honored for her work in special education

Chicago (March 9, 2012) Saint Xavier University Professor Meg Carroll, Ed.D., recently received the Sam Kirk Educator of the Year Award at the International Conference of the Learning Disabilities Association. The annual award honors educators who make outstanding contributions to the education of persons with learning disabilities.

A special educator since 1977, Carroll has long advocated for and taught students with learning disabilities. She has taught teacher candidates to be teachers of students with learning disabilities since 1981. By presenting at conferences, writing newsletters and books, and seeking to understand students who learn differently, Carroll has encouraged families and teachers to grow in acceptance of and celebrate the students with learning disabilities who have graced their lives. 

Carroll is a professor in SXU's School of Education. She received her Ed.D. from Loyola University Chicago and serves as the education consultant for PLAID, an independent, not-for-profit elementary school serving grades kindergarten through 8.
