Director Spotlight – Megan Jackowski

Megan Jackowski - Assistant Director of Darnestown Preschool

Megan Jackowski was also a teacher at Georgetown Hill before she joined our administrative team at Darnestown. You might have guessed that we LOVE to hire from within. Megan is a perfect example – we had to BEG her to come out of her classroom, and she finally caved.  Now Megan is the Assistant Director at our Darnestown preschool and helps inspire teachers globally at Georgetown Hill. Megan spearheads our “Owl Writes” program across all campuses.
