Megan Stone, M.Ed.
Megan is the founder and president of Stone Foundations of Learning, Inc. and has been working with students and faculty members across the country for over seventeen years. Earlier in her career, she taught science in the highly ranked Edina Public Schools before launching Stone Foundations of Learning, Inc. With a Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology and a Master’s degree in Life Science Education from University of Minnesota as well as her hands-on classroom experience, Megan is highly qualified in the field of education.
Megan has walked alongside students, providing the tools needed to achieve success. The mission of her company is to provide organizational strategies and study skills for students to excel in academics and life. Self-advocacy, responsibility, and ownership are the foundations of her program. Megan and her staff desire to assist students, parents, and educators in the process of encouraging success in and outside of the classroom. Megan has found confidence in the classroom carries over to every aspect of a student’s life.
Along with coaching students and families, Megan began consulting with school districts, colleges, and universities to better equip faculty to work with students who lack the tools to “do” the job of being a student and to build educational ownership. To assist in achieving these goals, she published The Ownership Series with Pearson Publishing for post secondary students. Megan continues to develop new materials for all levels of education and presents training seminars nationwide. She is currently working on a book for students due to be released in 2014.
On a personal note, Megan and her husband, Rick, have been married for 19 years and have two children. The Stone family enjoys time at the lake, traveling, and spending time together. Megan actively volunteers in her children’s school, her church, and the community.
