Grade 4

A little about me:

Hello. My name is Mrs. Peay, and I am the third grade teacher. I am a second-career teacher, although I have wanted to teach since I was in Kindergarten and taught all my dolls and stuffed animals their ABCs. For over 25 years, I was a graphic designer, switching careers 13 years ago. Since then I have had the opportunity to teach 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 6th grade science.

I live in Lebanon with my husband of 27 years, my two daughters - when they are not at college - and my new kitty-cat Cleo.

I love to read, do Sudoku puzzles, and also scrapbook and do embroidery work when time permits.
