Raindrop Teachers

Megan (she/her)

Hello! My name is Megan, and I joined Raindrop Room in 2017! I grew up in Boston and studied Biology and Environmental Studies in college. Since then, I have been an educator in different capacities – from serving in the Peace Corps in South Africa to traveling Washington State as an outreach educator. While I’ve worked with students of all ages, I especially love working with early learners. Their natural sense of wonder, curiosity, and joy is contagious. In my free time, I love being outside, running, hiking, or biking, and I love to bake – especially with chocolate!

Nick has been at Hilltop since July 2006. In that time he has worked with 3-5 year olds, and currently works with toddlers in the Raindrop Room. He enjoys the outdoors very much (backpacking/hiking and snowboarding), and anything that allows him and his dog, Ghenga, to romp around. Nick is also an active leader in The World Forum Foundation Men’s Working Group where they strive to promote Gender Balance in education; he also is on the Woodland Park Zoo’s Early Childhood Advisory Committee. Go Cougs!

Hello! My name is Amanda. I was born and raised in Seattle Washington and I have an 8-month-old daughter named Zuri. I have worked in early childhood education since 2012. Currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in early education. Huge sports fan (Go Huskies & Lakers), I played junior college basketball and coached 4th through kindergarten. I am very excited to be joining the Hilltop team. This year I hope the children learn just as much from me as I plan on learning from them.
