Megan joined the CDS team as lead teacher for Second Grade in 2021. After obtaining a BA in Art and studying Italian Renaissance Art History and Drawing in Florence, Italy, Megan went on to pursue a M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction from UVA. She has taught in public and private schools, most recently Free Union Country School as an art teacher. When she’s not with her favorite second graders at CDS, her two children, a middle schooler at CDS and a high schooler, her two dogs, and two cats keep her happily busy. When time permits, she enjoys hiking, white water rafting, barre, gardening, reading, and quiet time to create.
