Devoted wife and mother of four, Miss Peggie brings an incredible amount of passion and experience to Level Up preschool.

Originally from Oklahoma, I have lived in Washington for the past 8 years. I was raised with 5 brothers and sisters and spent much of my childhood helping my parents raise them. My love for kids began in high school courses in a preschool run by students which lead to a job at Deana’s Playhouse in-home daycare. I’m currently attending WSU to obtain a major in Education and a minor in Early childhood development.
I was born and raised in Tri-Cities, WA. I graduated in 2014 from Kamiakin High School and attended Tri-Tech Skills Center where I obtained my certificate in Early Childhood Education. While attending Tri-Tech I had the opportunity to do an internship at a local Elementary School where I was able to learn additional skills working with children in a Kindergarten setting. I have always had a passion for the learning and development of children. On my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, such as hiking and fishing, as well as spending time with my friends and family.
