Hoffman Trails Teacher Returns to her Roots

Born and raised in Hilliard, Meghan Caudill is a proud Davidson High School graduate. She’s known since she was 5 that she wanted to be a teacher. Better yet, she knew that she wanted to teach in the very community that gave her her start. 

That dream came to fruition two years ago. After graduating from the University of Dayton in 2017, she was hired at Whitehall City Schools, where she taught kindergarten and first grade for four years. All the while, she maintained her goal of returning to Hilliard. Today, she is a first grade teacher at Hoffman Trails Elementary, the same school she attended.

“It’s a cool and humbling experience to be back in Hilliard and at the same school I went to,” she said. “My fifth grade teacher is still here and remembers me just as I was in fifth grade, and it’s neat to see my students experiencing some of the same things I remember doing.”

She credits her time as a cheerleader and her involvement with Student Council in high school for developing her into the leader she is today. 

She said, “Hilliard Schools more than prepared me for life after high school. The education here is very community based, and I think that helps students prepare for the real world.”

Miss Caudill’s brother is a teacher at Darby High School, her family still lives just minutes from where she teaches, and she and her fiance recently moved to Hilliard, so she is Hilliard all the way!
