Mrs. Meagan Hudek

6th Grade Assistant Principal



My name is Meagan Hudek and I have been in education since 2008. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master’s Degree in Public School Administration both of which I earned from Texas A&M University. Gig’em Aggies!!! WHOOP!!!

Most of my educational career has been in Spring Branch ISD as well as a short time in Frisco ISD. I have served as a Social Studies middle school teacher and Department Chair for 10 years (8 of which were at SBMS), Dean of Instruction for 1 year, and most recently, the High School testing coordinator at Stratford for the past 2 years. I am incredibly excited to be returning to SBMS as the 6th grade Assistant Principal.

On a personal note, I have a wonderful husband, Jarrett and two amazing little boys, Kade(5) and Knox (1), who are my whole world. I love listening to live music, spending time with family and friends, supporting the 12th man, and enjoying life to the fullest.

Let’s make this a great year!

Hi Bears! 
My name is Maya Franchi and I have been in education since 2005. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a master’s degree in School Counseling. My entire educational career has been at Spring Branch ISD. I taught middle school for 10 years, then went to the Multilingual Department for 4 years, and now I’m starting year 4 at SBMS as the 8th grade principal. I feel very lucky to serve the Spring Branch community!

On a personal note, I have two children. My son graduated from Memorial High School and recently graduated from Texas State University. My daughter is a 2nd grader at Meadow Wood Elementary. I love to travel, workout eat delicious vegan food and of course spend time with my loved ones, including my pets.

Here is to a great school year!
