About Peggy

Each and every student has a special way to learn and are motivated by different things. The first thing to do is find how to to motivate them to want to learn, then find ways to reach them, and then deliver the tough material.

For the past 14 years I have taught almost 1600 students how to love math. I am currently employed as a middle school math teacher in the Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools.

My scores show improvement or growth each year. The students even come back to say - you were mean, tough, and I learned something, thank you. I know my methods work. I find games, connections, and competition to make each learning task worthwhile.

I can make a difference in your students learning too.
