My goal in life is to effect positive change in society and our future through children and education. I strongly believe in the child’s potential, that is often not supported by our adult perspective.  I am passionate about creating shifts in thinking so that true potential is realized. I advocate a Montessori approach to everything.  Particularly as a way to bring about change in how we view children and as a way of thinking to address many challenges society faces today.

I am first a wife and mother, writer, lifelong learner, teacher, former head of school, teacher trainer, Montessori consultant and speaker, and a “very supportive Aunt Maggie” to seven nieces and nephews. I also have many passions including reading, cooking, walking, gardening, travelling and lots of outdoor sports sprinkled with hot yoga.

I have two grown children who, with my husband Mark, have been immersed in a Montessori approach to life.  They are all tremendous cheerleaders of my work and passion to change our world through education.
