It's always helpful when teachers can relate the challenges of managing parenting, employment and school. Peggy fully gets this - she faces the same time constraints as her students. But ultimately, she believes in her students' abilities to be successful in and out of the classroom.

Get to know Peggy...

  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students in your department, what would it be? Don't let anyone tell you, "You cannot make it" including yourself. You can if you really want it badly enough.
  • What would you tell a student who struggling to find the balance in their personal/professional/academic life? First, I tell them they are the mirror image of me, because it's what I do every day. I share with them my own daily struggles and remind them to take it one day at a time. Ultimately, they have to make the decision to not accept failure.
  • What is it about this career field you enjoy so much? The students; watching them succeed is very rewarding. There's nothing like that moment when they cross the stage at graduation.
  • Share something unique about yourself you believe might help a student get to know you outside of school. I love outdoor activities like boating, fishing and camping but have a secret liking for ballroom dancing.
