Preschool Program Teacher
Hello! My name is Megan Tarrant, and I am teacher in the Preschool Program. I joined the Building Blocks team in September of 2014 as a Toddler Teacher. When it was time for those toddlers to move into preschool, I had the opportunity to move along with them into the Preschool Program.
I have lived in Michigan my entire life. At the age of four, my family moved to Novi where I grew up with my two older sisters. I come from a large extended family, full of teachers and artists. This inspired me from a young age into creative endeavors and into teaching as well.
After graduating High School in 2007, I attended Central Michigan University in their Education program. Coming from a family full of teachers, it was an easy decision to follow that same path. Initially, I started in the Secondary Education program, but soon found that wasn’t the right fit for me. During one of my classes, I had the opportunity to visit the CMU Child Development Learning Lab on campus. It was during this visit that my passion for early childhood education started, and I was introduced to the Reggio Emilia Approach. Spending time with children is truly a passion of mine. I love to watch their growth and development and am constantly amazed by their resilience and ability to find humor in any situation.
