Megan grew up in Southern Vermont and is rejoining the community by way of Rhode Island. She originally left the state to volunteer with AmeriCorps in a service learning program at a charter high school in Austin, Texas. There, she started taking classes at community college with an eye toward education. She completed her associate degree when she moved to Rhode Island and then her Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies at URI. Since starting in AmeriCorps and moving beyond, Megan has worked in a range of learning environments with a diversity of populations and age groups. She is passionate about creating an environment for children that fosters their independence and curiosity.
But Vermont has always been Megan’s home. She returns to the community of Southern Vermont and of Hilltop, being an alumni of the middle school herself. The things Megan loves the most about Vermont, Texas, and Rhode Island have been exploring and being a part of the natural landscape. She enjoys hiking, swimming, camping, and especially gardening. She is a curious observer of nature and gets great satisfaction from witnessing the living things that inhabit her yard, especially hummingbirds.
