McKenzie Meline received her Ph.D. in Special Education from the University of Oregon, where she focused on teacher preparation, academic instruction for English learners, and education policy. She holds a multiple-subject teaching credential, a special education teaching credential, and an administrative license. She applied her training to her time working abroad as a learning support coordinator in South Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore. At these schools, she was responsible for establishing special education programs that used the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) framework and trained teachers on using inclusive practices to support students with special needs in their classroom. Now she is passionate about developing reading intervention programs that target discouraged, struggling adolescent readers at the Tier 2 and 3 levels. She enjoys working with teachers implementing these programs and hearing about their success in transforming their students into competent and confident readers.
