Margaret has been teaching for over 40 years. She is now a mentor for so many younger teachers because her knowledge us so vast. She works in the younger years and assists with literacy programs. Margaret is the kindest most giving teacher I have ever known and at 70 plus years has not retired because of her love for her work and the children she helps. So many teachers retire without any recognition of their work and that would be such a shame if Margaret did not know how much we love and appreciate her. Many teachers on the Gold Coast know and love Margaret, however she would not know or believe this because she is so humble and 'Is just doing her job'. She is our very own national trrasure and we would love for her to know that.
