Ms. Yogi has her BS in Computer Science and an MBA. She first learned about the Montessori Education when she was researching for her older son a few years ago and fell in love with its methods and techniques. Her older son graduated Ms. Margaret’s class in 2015 while her younger son is currently enrolled in Ms. Margaret’s class. She feels honored to be a part of the new foundation at Freehold Montessori. It was during her past position, working for the US Navy, that she felt that she wanted to do a career change in hopes of making a difference in the lives of children by applying the Montessori methods of understanding children’s developmental needs. As a result of her experiences with children thus far, she has come to realize that allowing children to work at their own pace in a peaceful and noncompetitive environment greatly aids in their desire to learn.
Ms. Margaret has had the privilege of being Head Teacher here at Freehold Montessori since the first year of its opening in 1999. She completed her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and has a Master's Degree in Child Development. Ms. Margaret received her Montessori teaching certificate in 1982 and has previously held Head Teacher positions at Marlboro Montessori Academy and the Montessori Family School of Mercer County.

Ms. Margaret is grateful for the chance to keep in touch and learn about their milestones.
