Megan Spackman – Office Manager
As Office Manager, I handle the business side of the school and make sure that the train stays on the track. I was born and raised in Sonoma County and have spent much of my professional life working in Non-Profits and After-School programs both in Youth Development and Administration. I’m grateful to be part of such a warm and creative community. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy theatre, stand up comedy and spending time with my husband and son.

Samuel “Sam” Betty – 3/4
I graduated from Occidental College with a BA in Religious Studies and earned my teaching credential through the Cal State Teach program. I have been working with children for nearly ten years as a piano teacher and coach and am passionate about reading, music, project based learning and having FUN! I strive to facilitate an engaging and explorative learning environment that builds students up socially and emotionally while teaching them the academics. When I’m not in the classroom you can find me on the basketball court or rocking out on my piano, drums and guitars.
Cyndi Chapman – 2nd Grade
I have a BA from San Diego State University and a teaching credential from Sonoma State. I have been working in the education system since 2001. I have experience working with K-8 students and a lot of experience working with hands on, project based, inquiry learning. I encourage my students to think outside the box and to respectfully communicate their questions about the world around them. Social emotional learning is a big part of my classroom curriculum, as well as parent participation. I love for parents to come and help in the classroom supporting the teacher or even teaching their own special skills to the students.

Sue Green – 5th – 8th Grades, Language Arts & Social Studies
I am graduate of U.C. Davis with a degree in History and received my Multiple Subject credential from Sonoma State 19 years ago. It was volunteering in my son’s Kindergarten classroom that made it clear to me that I wanted to teach! I passionately believe in the power of collaboration and in the unique intelligence of every child. During my career I have taught in multi-age programs, worked as a Reading Specialist (K-8), Intervention Specialist, and a classroom teacher. In addition, I have a passion for social justice and I enjoy volunteering. I am most proud of being the mother of three fabulous boys, Jake, Eric and Ben. I love spending time hanging out with my husband, my dog and my cat. I am very happy to be part of the Reach community.
