Biography:

Margaret Boersma (OCT) is an integrated arts specialist, teaching artist, coach and consultant 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 into a process of learning that incorporates ‘powerful personal expression’. Role-play strategies, physical theatre, creative movement choreography and mime are vocabularies she uses to bring learning to life. Her methodology works as a catalyst in enhancing the teacher and student communication synergy and gets to the heart of how our students retain, relate and recreate themselves in a way that elevates their performance in school.  Margaret also does workshops for actors and teachers of actors to generate authentic memory experiences for characters and authentic movement vocabulary for character development.
