In the Patriot Spotlight: Megan Fendrick

September 02, 2018

Patriot Spotlight
Each week a Clarkson High School student or Clarkson Public Schools staff member will be randomly selected to be "In the Patriot Spotlight." This week’s Patriot is Mrs. Megan Fendrick. She is married to Zach Fendrick, and they’ve been together for 4 years. They got married last November. Mrs. Fendrick is a Clarkson alum and is currently a first-year para at Clarkson Public Schools.
Mrs. Fendrick attended Northeast Community College for early childhood development so she could start her own daycare. In 2010 she did just that and was a babysitter for 8 ½ years. She changed career path because she had a new job opportunity in Schuyler. She took the job in Schuyler because she wanted to be back in the school system. She loved the car rides on the way to school because she never knew what to expect. She does miss the stories that her daycare kids would tell. She also loves getting text messages from parents saying that their kids miss her. If she currently wasn’t a para, she said she would be still running her daycare and traveling the world. 
In high school Mrs. Fendrick’s favorite sport was volleyball because she loved the relationship between the teammates and the coaches. Mrs. Holly Clarkson and Mrs. Kim Hiemann were her coaches. If Mrs. Fendrick could go back in time and change something that happened, she would try harder than she did in her high school schooling. 
If Mrs. Fendrick won one million dollars, she would start investing because it is the smartest thing to do and in the end, she would have more money than what she started with. She would choose to invest in a wildlife refuge or a natural habitat. Her favorite animal is a moose because they are really big, and they have unique qualities.
Mrs. Fendrick’s favorite quote is “Everyone is allowed to have a bad day.” She likes that quote because she isn't going to judge anyone because they are having a bad day. It is easier to accept someone because they are having a bad day because nobody is perfect.
