Margaret Boersma, OCT is an educational consultant, teacher trainer, speaker, curriculum writer and teaching artist. Her career in teaching, combined with her expertise in social/emotional learning allows her to integrate the affective domain (people skills) with the curriculum.

This results in students increasing leadership and communication skills while becoming compassionate citizens.
