Hi,

I am a veteran teacher who divided my adult life between professional teaching and acting. Most of my thirty-three years of teaching experience was for the Hoboken, New Jersey School System. I took early retirement a few years ago to further pursue my professional acting career. I have learned in the few years since retirement that I really missed the student-teacher relationship.

Since I am an artist, I believe that education should be creative and fun. I like to remove the stress from the learning situation by making my students feel confident about their skills. In creating a positive environment, students thrive. I would love to meet with you and help you or your child become the top-rate student that he/she probably is. I hope to hear from you.

All the best,
Margo
