Super Kid

Big school, small school: Is enrolled in The Innovation School, one of five academies within Mountlake Terrace High School. Says it feels like she is in a small school, even though the school has more than 1,650 students. Likes Innovation’s emphasis on math and technology. Is studying geometry as a freshman in a class of 14 students. “Math is one of my favorite subjects. There is usually just one right answer. I like that.”

Quick impact: Made varsity soccer and softball teams as a ninth-grader. Plays midfield and forward in soccer and catcher and outfield in softball.

Hands off the radio: Drives to school with her brother, John, a senior, each day. He gets to control the music that’s played. “Once he got his (driver’s) license, we started getting along more. He kind of looks out for me now that we are in the same school.” Even so, Megan has her learner’s permit and can hardly wait to get her own license.

Future plans: “I have no idea. I really like doing art, but I plan to go to a four-year school.” Has particularly enjoyed a sculpture class at the high school this year.

Advice to freshmen: Has friends coming up from Brier Terrace Middle School next fall. She would tell them: “Don’t be nervous. It’s not as hard as people think it might be. The teachers help you out a lot.”

Advice II: “Don’t procrastinate. I have gotten a lot more responsible doing my work on time.”

Likes high school: Even in a small academy, she still finds time during the day to see friends in different small schools. “I like high school a lot more. There is a lot more freedom. You meet a lot more people.”

Free time: Away from school and sports, she likes family vacations, hanging out with friends and Young Life activities.
