Margaret Egan

Margaret_EganGrowing up in New York City, and visiting Ireland as a child, gave me a deep appreciation for nature and green spaces. I have also always loved how science gives us tools to understand the world. I worked as an Urban Park Ranger, a college biology instructor, and an environmental scientist before earning a teaching degree. I taught middle school science for several years before coming to Tuckahoe. I enjoy gardening and watching backyard birds with my husband. We have twin daughters who have graduated from college. We also have two little dogs. As Outdoor Learning Coordinator / STEAM teacher, I have wonderful opportunities to share my love for both science and nature with students, and to invite the whole Tuckahoe community to nurture, enjoy, and learn from our amazing Discovery Schoolyard.
