Megan Macleod, Head of School
Class Afloat is pleased to announce the appointment of Megan MacLeod as our new Head of School. Megan oversees the delivery of our academic curriculum, port programming, community and sail training aspects of the Class Afloat program.
Megan comes to the Head of School position with many years of Class Afloat experience and a deep understanding of the program potential from a faculty and ship life perspective. She taught sciences as a Class Afloat faculty member from 2010 – 2014 and was appointed Shipboard Director in her last year aboard. While teaching on land over the last two years she has furthered her professional interests in leadership studies and curriculum development while continuing to serve as an Academic Advisor to Class Afloat. She brings a global perspective to the program from her teaching experiences in China and Australia.
Driven by a passion to engage young people in activities that allow them to develop their leadership skills and full potential as global citizens, Megan believes that sailing the world on a traditional tall ship will allow our students to gain the life skills required for success in 2016 and into the future.
