Megan Peterson

Business Development and Innovation Manager

Megan is challenged with figuring out how we can keep supporting educators in Aotearoa New Zealand and overseas to raise learner achievement and reduce disparity. She works from our Auckland office. She:

  • works with business partners to find collaboration opportunities

  • pitches our services

  • generates proposals

  • works with our company leads on innovative products and services

  • understands the challenges teachers and leaders experience while they focus on improving student outcomes.

Megan is also an experienced education consultant. She is an accredited Leading by Learning facilitator and has strengths in leadership development, assessment for learning, and NCEA. She has supported teachers, school leaders, and system leaders in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia and Scandinavia.

Megan has a background in secondary education – teaching and middle leadership in classical studies and drama. She has a deep understanding of effective pedagogy and of analysing data to inform teaching and learning. Megan has extensive experience in assessment, particularly in how to empower students and teachers through formative assessment practices within NCEA. She is a previous president of the New Zealand Association of Classical Teachers and she has also been a national moderator for Classical Studies.

Megan has a Master’s degree in Education focusing on assessment for learning. Her research explored how students use, experience, and understand written teacher feedback. She is currently completing a Master of Business Development at the University of Auckland.

In her spare time, Megan enjoys snowboarding (although she is not very good), travel, and the theatre.
