Maggie was an amazing person who made everyone feel loved, comfortable, heard, and who I'm sure helped to draw out the full potential of all she worked with. I had the pleasure of working with her at BMPCS last school year, and she really did shine with love for those around her.

I worked with Maggie for a short period of time at Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School but whenever I was encountered by Maggie, she always greeted me with an angelic smile and spoke with a sincere heart. She seemed to take pride in her work and gave each child individualized educational services in a genuine manner. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Her light will continue to live in the hearts of those who loved and knew her well. May God Bless

I heard the shocking news from Ginger and am in disbelief. Maggie was such a great friend and wonderful person. I have many fond memories of spending summers together in the adirondacks at camp. Unfortunately time and distance hadn't kept us close, but she was never forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Maggie was one of the brightest stars in our school.....every time I had the chance to talk or share with her as a colleague, I left a little brighter and happier. She will be missed by my family, and the Baltimore Montessori family. We send our love and prayers to Tim and the children. Maggie was a beautiful person who made the world more beautiful.
