From Students

Maegan honestly cares about every student she teaches. She makes the highest effort to personalize her teaching style to cater to every student’s strengths and weaknesses. After spending 4 years at Furman, I have never met a teacher as caring, adaptive, and passionate as Maegan.

I think that the TA teaching a class can really ‘make it or break it’ so to speak. Because of your enthusiasm and laid back personality as a TA in intro to theater, it encouraged me to take the intro to acting class. I’m not pursuing a career in theater or anything like that, but I enjoy the classes and I think that has a lot to do with a good foundation and a good TA. So thank you for spending your time helping us out…

This is due to the many activities and exercises that our motivating teacher, who never gave up on ANYONE, Maegan McNerney. She is truly an inspiration and she has taught me, and I’m pretty sure everyone else, a lot…My teacher was down to earth and she was always willing to work with you.

From Parents

…I wanted to tell you that I thought the play you directed [Antigone] was absolutely riveting! You have quite an eye. I thought [Choragos] and [Antigone] were superb. Nice movement and staging. The story was really intense and you made it easy for an audience to watch such an ‘in your face’ story. Really a great job.
