If you could learn to do one thing, what would it be? Play the organ as well as my former teacher, in a huge cathedral.

People would be surprised to know… I performed for Presidents Reagan and Bush (Sr.), and saw President Carter and Margaret Thatcher - all at LSU at different times. I was a top 10 finalist and overall talent winner for the Miss LSU Pageant. Played flute choir music with Sir James Galway, and members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's flute section. I auditioned for the President's Own Marine band in DC.

BBI Staff Spotlight!
Ms. Meagan Hearen
Special Education Aide
How long have you been at BBI? First year
Where are you from and where did you grow up?I was born in Huntsville, Texas but moved to The Woodlands in 5th grade. I graduated from Klein Oak High School in 2008.
What inspired you to work with children? My mom was a teacher and 8th grade school counselor for 35 years and my aunt was a teacher and High School counselor for 32 years in Klein ISD. I’ve seen both of them go through ups and downs while working in education. I’ve seen my mom cry from working with 1st graders to working with intermediate students, and watching my aunt having to argue with parents about their children graduating, but at the end of the day still loving their jobs. Watching them over the years helping children see their true potential when, in some cases, even their parents have given up on helping them succeed, has been inspiring.
What is your favorite book? I love all the Harry Potter books.
What was your favorite subject in school? History
If you could learn to do one thing, what would it be? I’ve always wanted to learn how to snowboard.
If you could have any other career, what would it be? When I was a little girl my family and I would go to Yellowstone National Park every summer on vacation. I always loved waking up early in the morning and going out driving because that’s when you would see all the animals that where normally hard to find. If you woke up early enough and knew where to go you could see the wolves. I’ve always wanted to study the wolves in Yellowstone.
Who do you consider your hero? My 7 year old daughter is my hero. She is probably the most loving and happy child I have ever seen, and no I’m not just saying that because I am her mother she truly loves everyone no matter what they have said or done to her. She sticks up for everyone and will take the blame even if the other person is in the wrong, just because she wants everyone to just be happy. She is the youngest, but tallest child in her grade and she will make sure everyone has a friend to play with before going off with her friends on the playground.
People would be surprised to know… I just turned 30 in October!
