People of CBJ: Meg Elliott
“I’ve realized there is a lot of my identity wrapped up in being a teacher and being able to see my students every day. When that was so abruptly taken away, that was soul-crushing. I miss the kids. I miss their faces, their hellos, their hugs, their high-fives. I ended my school year on Zoom saying, ‘I love you and I miss you and I will see you in second grade.’ One kid waved his foot at me goodbye and the other rolled his eyes and said, ‘OK, Ms Elliott,’ but I just had to say it.”
Meg Elliott is a special education teacher at Riverbend Elementary School. She’s worked for the Juneau School District for 7 years.
