Megan graduated from Marist College in 2006 with a B.A. in Childhood Education Special Education. Her experience working in the public school systems of Poughkeepsie, New York was so valuable and enriching. She spent her time working in both a kindergarten classroom, as well as a residential home for children who experienced trauma.  

Shortly after graduating, Megan moved back to Vermont and divided her time working as an early education teacher and after school program director.  She quickly found her passion in Early Education Administration and after over a decade as a Director, she finally settled into her dream job : Executive Director of an inclusive, diverse, and therapeutic early education center known as Trinity Children’s Center. 

Megan continues to learn from her mentor, Maureen Danielczyk (previous Director of TCC for 38 years), and play a key role in local policy and advocacy committees.  Megan is passionate about providing high-quality, equitable, inclusive, and affordable early education for families. In her spare time, Megan spends time with her family, husband, two children, and many pets enjoying the beautiful state of Vermont and all it has to offer.

Kate Evans

Program Director

After falling in love with teaching while accompanying my step-mom to her job as an Adaptive Physical Educator, I knew I wanted to go into Special Education. At UVM, the choice of teaching major that looked most interesting to me was Early Childhood Special Education. I had never worked with children that young but I fell in love with the age group and worked for four years to learn everything I could about the field. This work included many student-teaching experiences at Trinity and six months of teaching experience in Stockholm, Sweden. I graduated with my degree in Early Childhood Special Education and started working as a classroom teacher at Trinity the next fall. I have now been here for four years and loved every minute of it. Some of my favorite activities with students include, playing in the snow, reading and writing stories, exploring nature and getting messy! When I am not at work, I am a huge outdoor enthusiast. I love to swim, run, snowboard, bike and hike. Anyone who knows me would also probably say that I am a bit of a food fanatic and they would be right.
