Meet your teacher
Maggie Stein is an educator and learner, currently working as a Pre-K teacher in Casablanca, Morocco at an international school. Born and raised in New York City, she grew up in parks and museums, out and about exploring the city. Maggie attended Gettysburg College for her undergraduate degree where, surrounded by American History, she studied Education and Folklore Literature. After four years, she missed New York City and returned home to attend Bank Street College of Education where she earned her Master’s in Museum and Childhood Education. Maggie leads her own classroom and Museum tours with the same values in which she was raised – to ask questions, to create, and to find out more.
