Margaret and I worked together in an outdoor education company for adolescents and young adults. Margaret's warm enthusiasm and humor easily win over the people in her charge. As they recognize her as someone to both respect and enjoy, children often happily complete tasks (like brushing teeth) that otherwise elicit stubbornness; they want to earn her approval! Her creativity transforms empty downtime into exciting and innovative play time. Logistically, Margaret somehow stays entirely present with the kids, while also being keenly aware of any task that needs completing. Her strongest quality in a caregiving role however, is her emotional intelligence. Margaret instantly notices shifts in the mood of her care-receivers, then therapeutically encourages the individual to share their concerns, and then lovingly helps them work through their issue. Where many would either fail to notice an emotional change, or shy away from the support process, Margaret confidently and capably steps up.
