MARGARET BULEY, Ph.D: FOUNDER AND EDUCATION DIRECTOR
Dr. Maggie has extensive knowledge of brain-based learning strategies and Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
Dr. Maggie believes that school readiness starts at birth and can be greatly enhanced during the early childhood years. She knows that learning occurs as the brain rewires itself with each new experience. Presenting the appropriate experiences at the right time is essential.
Dr. Maggie's life's work is not only to understand educational theory, but to put that theory into practice. To that end, she has been very successful. Creating the optimum learning environment has won Dr. Maggie many accolades. In addition to being a multiple recipient of Teacher of the Year, Dr. Maggie was chosen as an outstanding teacher by USA Today.
