Margaret Ricks

Washington, DC
Margaret B. Ricks teaches Pre-K/K at the School Within School (SWS) at Goding.  SWS is a teacher-run public school program that grew out of the collective efforts of Margaret and three other teachers who sought to apply the principles and practices of the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education in District of Columbia Public Schools. Since the program’s inception, 20 years ago, the school has expanded from four Pre-K/K classrooms to an elementary school. Margaret’s role is also to organize open houses that shares the adaptation of the Reggio approach in a public school setting with educators in public, private and charter schools. She is also an active member of DC-Project Zero and was a participant in the first WISSIT. As a result of the institute, Margaret’s classroom focus has been to make learning visible through participation in the Children Are Citizens project, a collaboration between Project Zero, local early childhood classrooms, and cultural institutions aiming to explore the notion of young children as citizens. She holds both bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Early Childhood Education. Margaret will co-lead a learning group at WISSIT 2017.
