Marjorie Wilkov is a teacher and a cultural anthropologist, currently leading group discussions bimonthly in Spirituality sessions with senior citizens.
Marjorie has worked as a dyslexia teacher, in elementary and middle school classes in Texas.
Since 2006 she has had a prevailing interest in tea and its history, lecturing and presenting fascinating tea facts to children and adults. Eventually, this activity was extended to include etiquette classes for the school age population.
Previously Marjorie worked at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
Her position as Administrative Assistant to the Director of the Office of Repatriation was originally under the Department of Anthropology at the SI. President George W. Bush signed into law an establishment of repatriation to the Native Americans, Alaskans, and Hawaiians. Marjorie was the first on board, assisting in returns of funerary artifacts and sacred objects.
Marjorie completed two Masters Degrees before employment at the SI, one in Elementary Education and the other as a Master’s Degree in Teaching Anthropology which led to instructing people of all ages on different subjects.
She recently accomplished three years of leading two separate Spirituality groups with original agendas, individually written for each meeting.
Marjorie has published two children’s books and a Master’s thesis entitled Anthropology, Public Education, and Museology.
She lives in Round Rock, Texas, and has two children and two grandchildren.
