About Mrs. Peelman

I love teaching. I have my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. This year is my sixth year here at Terre Town. I taught fourth grade my first year and I have been teaching second grade ever since then. I love warm weather and being outside. I also love the beach, flip flops, and coffee. I am the mom to four kids. I love spending time with my husband and our kids.

I want to help your child succeed and equip them with all they need. Please never hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
