    Presenter:

    Margaret Whitley is an AMI elementary trained Montessori educator and leader.  She taught all levels of elementary, established the first Montessori middle school in Canada in 1988 and is the former head of Montessori Academy of London (MA), the school she went to as a child. During her 13 years as executive director, she led the school through multiple changes, including a change in ownership/governance, a change of name and branding, new operational structure, significant renovations, purchasing and selling of property, new government licensing requirements and with her Board of Governors a smooth leadership transition leading to her retirement.

    Presently, she is a guest lecturer at the Toronto Montessori Institute and in the past was a board member and Director of Accreditation for the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators.  She is the parent of Emma and Mark, who in their late twenties attribute much of their success to their 12-year Montessori foundation. Margaret holds a honours degree in history and MFA in creative non-fiction writing.  Margaret currently writes, speaks, and consults about many topics related to education.  She is completing her first book, (working title) A World of Difference: How Montessori Influenced My Life.
