Margaret McKibbin-Favreau

Known as Margy, she was born and educated in New Jersey and recently moved to cape cod from the Jersey shore. She taught at Madison High School in Madison as a co teacher in Biology, Chemistry and Physics where she encouraged students, especially young women, to pursue careers in science. She retired in the fall of 2009 after 25 years of public education service.

She holds a BA in education from the College of St. Elizabeth (1982), a Masters degree (M.ED) in Developmental Disabilities (1990) and post-graduate work in Learning Disabilities, and teacher supervision (1993) from William Paterson University. Teaching is a second career for Margy- she worked in a local hospital as a Respiratory Therapy Technician from 1972 to 1985 where she oversaw patients on life support equipment in the Intensive Care Unit.

In addition to teaching for the AMNH since 2008, she was also a field supervisor for Caldwell College, Caldwell, New Jersey, where she oversaw student teachers. Margy is an active competitor at the national level in dressage and is frequently on the road to horseshows with her trainer. She recently donated one of her horses to a therapeutic riding program for handicapped riders after being returned from the United States Equestrian para-olympic team.

Margy and her husband, Charles, are the proud grandparents of three and frequently visit them in California.
