Marianne’s relationship with HBP began in 1998 when her son, Logan, was enrolled as a first grader. In 2000, she became a teacher at HBP both on Open Days as well as elective class days. She has a Single Subject Credential in English, and a Multi-Subject Credential. She loves crafts, art, writing, games, gardening, and animals. “My favorite part of HBP is the kids!”
I’m Megan Robertson and I have lived in Santa Barbara since 1985. My husband, Marty, and I have three kids with whom we love to camp and travel. I have homeschooled our kids at HBP since 2002. I taught in a traditional classroom at Carpinteria Middle School in the mid-‘90’s and then took a break when our son was born in 1997. Even as a teacher, I felt intimidated stepping into homeschooling in 2002. I was so glad to have a community of people to share the experience, to learn from, and most of all, to be a positive learning and growing environment for my children. I made the shift from being a parent and substitute to parent and regular staff at HBP in the fall of 2014. I love my role as teacher, supporter, and friend of kids and families at HBP.
Stacey has been teaching at Santa Barbara Charter School since 2003. She has a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from UCSB with a supplementary credential in Science. Her passion is spending time in nature and learning about animals. She enjoys camping with her husband and 2 young kids in the Sierra each summer, fostering their own connection to the natural world. “I believe in a parent-child cooperative model for education. HBP allows me to support each child’s first teacher, their parents, in achieving academic goals.”
