About

My name is Meghan Bonde.

After many years working as an educational leader cultivating high performing teams, co-creating inclusive systems, strategic planning, and facilitating transformational learning for educators and leaders, I discovered that I am neurodivergent (twice-exceptional). 

I decided to create an organization that leverages my unique strengths and meets my needs. Now I utilize my expertise about neurodiversity along with my leadership experience to partner with organizations to help them create learning and development experiences designed to the edges to accelerate growth for all.  I optimize the performance of teams and leverage the diverse strengths of each person by centering people who are wired differently in the design process and utilizing a universal design for learning approach.

My 
Story

Get to Know Me

As a child, I loved to "play school" and I even started a business in my unfinished basement with my best friend who lived across the street.  We provided day camps, dance clubs, theater experiences, and more for the neighborhood children.  I often helped my mom, who was an educator, with grading papers and posting bulliton boards in her classroom. 

 

When I got to college at the College of Saint Benedict in Minnesota, I had so many interests and ended up choosing Psychology, because I loved it, even though I didn't know where my path would lead.  I wasn't ready to start working, because I loved to learn, so I chose to pursue a master's degree in Speech Language Pathology at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  I could use my ability to speak Spanish, be an educator, and integrate my passion for psychology. 

 

Through my work in special education, I realized that I loved systems thinking, strategic planning, and supporting transformational learning and development for adults to create environments where the neurodivergent students that I worked with could thrive, so I returned to a graduate program to get an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership with a principal license.

 

Now, I use my knowledge about leading change and supporting the development of people with all kinds of minds through designing and facilitating transformational learning.       

What I’ve learned: “Trust is when you can admit that you don't know something or aren't perfect and know that you won't be judged. You can let go and allow each person to do their role and the relationship will survive and improve with challenges and mistakes.”

 

What I love: “I absolutely love to dance, especially to pop and hip hop music. I am part of a dance group called FAMJAM and I recently appeared in my first music video for a band called the Elektric Animals (see video below). I also have dance parties at home with my family sometimes and go to Denver Dance Tribe events, which give me the opportunity to dance to 90's music before my bedtime with a DJ.”

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
