My name is Peggy Engelman. I am a mother of four adult children and grandmother to six children ranging in age from newborn to thirteen. I am originally from the New York area but have lived in Georgia for the past 21 years.
I have been teaching special education in the public schools for 31 years. My experience ranges from teaching children from kindergarten age through grade 6 as well as teaching high school equivalency classes. I am certified at the Bachelors level in Regular Education K-6 and teaching of Mentally Impaired students. I am certified in teaching students identified with Learning Disabilities and Behavior Disorders, at the Masters level. I also have my Specialist Degree in Leadership and Reading instruction. Additionally, I have taught in private settings for five years. Within those years, I taught General Education for two years, but the majority of my experience is in working with special needs students.
I just retired from the Gwinnett County School System in June of 2021, Osborne Middle School in Hoschton, GA. I am now excited for a new teaching chapter that continues to allow me to instruct children who need improvement in their reading and written expression skills, but also allows me more time to spend with my family. I greatly look forward to this new experience and with doing my best to assist the children under my care.
