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!

My name is Brandy, and teaching is my passion. Since a very young age, I have known that I wanted to teach. I am ready and prepared for my next amazing adventure here at Hilltop. Every day is a new, fun and exciting adventure! I was born and raised in Louisiana. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana. I have taught for 14 years prior to moving to Seattle last summer. My last 11 years were spent in High School. I have also taught middle/junior high school for 3 years. Last summer I worked with the Camps for Curious Minds at the Pacific Science Center. I spent the last year working with Pre-K students with another organization in Seattle. Beyond the classroom, I am a Mom to an amazing 20-year-old son. My hobbies are hiking, visiting National Parks, cooking, baking and pretty much anything to do with science! I’m looking forward to an amazing year and joining the Hilltop family.

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.
