Teaching for Artistic Behavior

BY MARGARET BURMAN
@ VOL 25 ON JAN 09, 2019

Margaret Burman lives in Saco with her two daughters and one husband. She used to teach middle school art but has found her niche teaching art in the elementary school setting—because: is there any phrase more likely to send a chill down an educator’s spine than “Middle Schooler”? No…no there isn’t.  

In addition to her teaching prowess, Margaret’s other superpower is coming up with new business ideas. If she had some follow through and any actual interest in having a business, she would probably be very wealthy.
