Despite illness last year, she has transformed the lives of all seven teachers in the art department of this large comprehensive, according to Sarah Cassell, the school's post-16 director who nominated her for our bouquet. Margaret has been at the school for six years. She works "exceptionally hard", and often puts herself out collecting usful materials. She's supportive and diplomatic, bubbly and perceptive. staff and pupils love her. "We are all saner and more organised thanks to Margaret."
