About the Author(s)

Susan received her bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin, her MEd degree in secondary education from Boston University, an MA in special education from Acadia University, and her PhD from the University of South Australia.

Margaret's mother warned her that teaching "would be too boring. But with a BA in theater and the desperate teacher shortage of the early 1970s, what else could I do?" she says. "So I got into it and made sure no day was ever boring."
