TEACHERS (3-6 year olds)
My name is Megan Campbell and I am so thrilled to be joining the Discovery team. My passion for teaching has been life long but it wasn’t until I found and fell in love with the Montessori Method in 2010 that I found my educational calling. So, in 2013 I began my journey towards becoming Montessori certified at the Montessori Teacher Training Institute in Clemson, SC. Since receiving my training I have helped guide children in the 3-6 year old classroom by encouraging their independence, strengthening their self confidence and creating a classroom community of kindness and respect for one another.
When I’m not in the classroom you can find me trying to keep up with my two year old son River and spending time outdoors in the garden or on the trails with my family. I look forward to getting to know you all and cheers to the school year.
Hello everyone. My name is Kieran Dalton. I have worked in Early Childhood Education since 2010. I received my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education in 2013 and have explored many educational settings over the years. I previously worked in a Montessori school in Georgia from 2010-2013. After graduating I worked in the public school system in Georgia and then in Missouri.
I am currently enrolled in school and will obtain my Masters in Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on Literacy in 2022. Literacy counts from day one and helps lay a foundation for success in school and throughout life. It is my goal to help each child I work with become strong, independent, and successful learners.
I am married and have a wonderful little boy, Jacob. We moved to Asheville in July of 2018 and have loved every minute here. We are frequently found outside exploring nature and finding new trails to bike.
Hi! My name is Gabrielle, but I go by Ms. Gigi! I have my bachelors degree in Psychology from Loyola University New Orleans.
I’ve been the Lead Preschool Teacher for the Butterflies classroom in Raleigh and have taught as a a Certified Kid’s Yoga Instructor for 4 years. I taught English in Vietnam which is my favorite experience to date. Using empathy and guiding independence are the most influential things I’ve learned in my life and try to give back to my students. In my free time, I love finding new waterfalls with my dog, Cayenne Pepper as well as practicing yoga. I’m so excited to watch your children grow this year!
I moved to Asheville from Boston last year with my partner after falling in love with the area on a road trip. I have been working professionally in childcare since 2015 and have enjoyed different positions including an after school art teacher & program director, summer camp counselor, nanny, and gymnastics coach.
In my spare time you can find me hiking in the mountains, reading with my cat Nya, browsing local antique markets, crafting in my art room, or walking the newest member of our family- a rescue pup named Levi!
