Aside from being a mentor, Margaret is an English and electives teacher at Fusion Academy Fairfield. She graduated from the University of Vermont in January of 2019 with Phi Beta Kappa honors, earning her Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Writing. Margaret also double minored in Art History and Nutrition & Food Science.
During her undergraduate studies, Margaret completed the CRLA’s International Tutor Training Program Certification to become a Certified Master Tutor. For a little over a year, she tutored in UVM’s Undergraduate Writing Center where she mentored and worked one-on-one with both native English-speaking students and ESL students of all ages, backgrounds, learning abilities, and disciplines. She also instructed, oversaw, and mentored a class of first-year students through UVM’s Arts & Creativity Learning Community during her final semester. Earlier in her undergrad, Margaret interned in the Education & Public Programs Department at the Fleming Museum of Art in Burlington, VT. Here, she led tours for visiting students, conducted research for exhibitions, and created and developed an interactive exhibition pamphlet for visiting families and young children. In the near future, she plans to pursue her M.A. in Creative Writing.
Outside of education, Margaret has served as an editorial intern at TownVibe in Ridgefield, CT, where she had the opportunity to write feature lifestyle articles for Wilton Magazine and Ridgefield Magazine. When she isn’t playing around with words, you can find Margaret either collaging and grooving to some eclectic tunes or cooking while listening to NPR. She loves a clever pun; art history factoids make her giddy; and she is a passionate proponent of the Oxford comma.
