Megan Kwan-Nixon has been a mentor to children of all ages for the past 15 years and is an advocate for helping others nurture and develop their confidence. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Megan recently moved to Hong Kong to join her husband, and is excited to create a new life here.
Having taught at two of the best independent schools in Canada: York House School and West Point Grey Academy, Megan understands the importance of maintaining a professional image, while remaining approachable and reliable for her families and students. During five years as an elementary educator at West Point Grey Academy, she helped overhaul and re-shape the scope of learning of the school’s Grade 3 curriculum to align and modernize learning with the province-wide introduction of the BC New Curriculum.
Megan is passionate about education because she believes that her role as a teacher is to help all her students realize and own their self-worth and to help them find the courage to take risks in their learning through creativity and happy exploration.
As a firm believer in life-long education: Megan is a lifer and alumna of York House School, and has two conferred degrees from the University of British Columbia: a BA in English Literature and a BEd degree in elementary education. Megan currently holds a BC Teaching Certificate, and as a former athlete she has 15 years of coaching experience in both basketball and track and field — two sports that she excelled in. When Megan is not teaching she spends her time outdoors with family and friends. She believes in protecting the environment, and promoting equality and empowerment. Megan is excited to be a part of the Bloom family, and is looking forward to modernizing the outlook of education in Hong Kong.
