Margaret (Mags) grew up in Vermont surrounded by the natural beauty of the Green Mountains and Lake Champlain. As a musician, she began performing at a young age and teaching was a natural outgrowth of her passion and love of music. She is currently the assistant school director and director of the arts at United Community School in Charlotte, NC. Margaret has been key in training and initiating yoga programs in the Charlotte area public school system, especially within the basic school community.
The training and professional development courses she leads include self-care techniques based in mindfulness practices such as yoga and meditation for classroom teachers and their students.
In addition to her training in music, pedagogy and school leadership, Margaret holds certifications through the Organization of American Kodály Educators with a specialization in children’s choir development, Hatha Yoga and Grounded Kids Yoga.
