Megan Shields-Brommel | Lead Teacher, Caterpillar Room
I'm originally from Southern, Iowa but now live in Ames with my husband, Nate, our daughter, Izabelle, son Izaac & American Bulldog, Rylee.
I love working with children of different ages and seeing them light up at new discoveries. I love how they react and change everyday, no two days are the same!
In my spare time I love sewing and working on new projects and patterns. I enjoy reading and spending time with family and friends.
