Margaret began volunteering with the Dartmouth Learning Network in 2001, the year she retired after 32 years of teaching in the public school. She holds two Masters degrees in education, continues to work part time for Mount Saint Vincent University in teacher-training, and considers herself a lifelong learner. Margaret has helped to organize fund raisers (Word for Word) for DLN, has served on the Board of Directors, but derives most satisfaction as a tutor. A firm believer in multiple intelligences and diverse learning styles, Margaret has great respect and admiration for the students with whom she works as a DLN tutor. “It's also fun, and the students are interesting, interested people!” says Margaret.
In her spare time Margaret reads, paints, volunteers with MISA, walks Riley and delights in the new joys of being a grandmother!
