Mrs. Megan Hillegass
Hello! I am so excited to be working in the Caterpillar Room at the VVECC. I am new to the district, but have taught for 15 years in Chicago Public Schools and District 130 in Blue Island. I was also adjunct faculty at Erikson Insitute for 10 years, teaching graduate-level classes in the teacher education program and the Bilingual/ESL endorsement program.
I live in New Lenox with my husband of 21 years and my 3 kids: Iain (14), Ruby (12), and Josie (10). As a family we love to hike, camp, and go on long bike rides. I spend lots of time attending their sports, dance, and music concerts, but when I do get some free time I love to read, cook, and play my ukulele.
