dHLOnAir + Margaret Boersma
Margaret Boersma, OCT, is a creative educational consultant, coach, teaching artist, curriculum writer, thought leader and speaker, who is passionate about effecting a transformation in the education system by her innovative ‘first person learning’ approach to teaching.
With over 30 years experience teaching kindergarten to grade 8, Margaret is a life-long enthusiast of brain compatible strategies to engage students in a process of learning that incorporates ‘powerful personal expression’. Her methodology embeds social and emotional skills while enhancing the teacher and student communication synergy. This approach gets to the heart of how our students retain, relate and recreate themselves. The result is that students are empowered in their work, academic achievement escalates, powerful learning skills are adopted and students are compassionate citizens with a desire to make a difference.
