Co-Head of School,
Liberal Arts & Sciences Teacher

M.A. in Liberal Arts, St. John's College 

B.A. in Environmental Studies & Anthropology, Mount Holyoke College 

A native New Englander, Megan spent the last twelve years exploring America's cultural and natural richness while teaching across the curriculum and throughout the country.  After earning her B.A. in Anthropology and Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College, she began her education career with Teach for America in the Mississippi Delta. She then took a brief hiatus for graduate school at St. John's College before relocating to teach science and philosophy in Phoenix, AZ.  Seeking  both family and rainfall, she and her husband have returned to the East Coast along with their two dogs, where they look forward to settling down and enjoying everything the NEK has to offer.  Outside of EBS, Megan can be found gardening, exploring the area's hiking trails with her family, and training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Nathan Bradshaw

Co-Head of School,
Liberal Arts & Sciences Teacher

M.A. in Liberal Arts, St. John's College 

A.B. in English, Davidson College 

Born and raised in Western North Carolina, Nathan has spent almost 15 years teaching a little bit of everything just about everywhere.  The generous John M. Belk scholarship allowed him to attend Davidson College, where he earned an A.B. in English and once stole the ball from Stephen Curry.  He later earned an M.A.L.A. studying the classics at St. John's College, where he met Megan.  He is overjoyed to have followed her to EBS, where eclectic improvisation and lifelong learning are job requirements.  Nathan's interests have wandered among guerrilla stage & audiobook productions, Euclidean & hyperbolic geometry, Emersonian & Nietzschean philosophy, Indian & soul food, American & French revolutions, and Marvel & DC comics.  Now he gets to add gardener, stonemason, sous-chef, and videographer to the list of amateur titles, with many more to come.
