Margot Landahl

My journey began almost two years ago, as I sat down with three incredibly talented Delta educators, Peter DeConti, Sarah Shove and Mary Messer. It was during our conversations that I realized that the Core Competencies might well be the most exciting change for me in the new BC curriculum. I began to understand the Core Competencies as a way to teach thinking that nurtured the well being of the self and helped to create connectedness through social responsibility and compassion for place and people.

Margot Landahl lives with her family on both sides of the Coast Salish Sea. She is a proud mom, wife and Delta School District teacher. Margot maintains a close connection to nature having spent over 20 years exploring our coast by sailboat and kayak. She has a deep respect for the Indigenous Peoples and natural history of British Columbia.
