Peggy has been involved in Christian education for over 35 years as a homeschool mom, classroom teacher, substitute teacher, tutor, and elementary-level curriculum writer. Working with her own struggling learner at home and substituting in a Christian special education school led Peggy to pursue further training through a special education degree. She desires every child to acquire the tools he or she needs to reach their full God-given potential. Peggy and her husband, Arnold, live in South Carolina. They have three grown children. Peggy stays in touch with homeschooling as her oldest daughter homeschools three of their grandchildren.
