Margaret Kilcoyne - Second Grade Teacher

Hello! My name is Margaret (Maggi) Kilcoyne and I teach second grade at Kensington Elementary School. I began working at KES in 1984, as an intern in Mrs. Streeter's first grade class. I have been teaching first or second grade students since that time. Mrs. Lawler, the other second grade teacher, is a very good friend of mine. :)

In 1988 I graduated from University of New Hampshire with a Master's of Education degree in Elementary Education. Previous to that, I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Bradford College, and an Associate of Science Degree from Northern Essex Community College.

Not only do I work in Kensington, but I live here, too. My husband and I have raised two beautiful daughters who are now in college. Many years ago when the girls attended KES, I was their first grade teacher!

Childhood should be a journey, not a race,
is a quote from the Society for Developmental Education, and it is one that I hold true in my classroom. Emotional, social, as well as intellectual growth are important factors that I keep in mind when planning educational activities for my students. I love teaching!
