Intentergy is my attempt at saving the world. I know I cannot bring world peace or end all anger and hurting, but I can share positive energy. Positive energy is healthy, necessary, and most of all contagious! If I can help or enhance the life of just one person with my thoughts and Intentergy challenges, I have answered my calling as a human being.
This blog is created with love and consideration. Much of what I know and have experienced is because of my family and friends. I grew up on a dairy farm in Southeast Missouri and am the product of 12 years of Catholic education. Along the way I earned an Associates degree in Speech and Theatre at Three Rivers Community College in Popular Bluff, MO. After working for the wonderful world of Disney as a character performer, I found that God was calling me to be an educator. I earned my bachelor and master’s degrees in education from Lincoln University in Jefferson City, MO. In my efforts to become a teacher, I worked as a substitute and, as a result of one of my substitute positions, I was set up with Greg Peters. That blind date resulted in the greatest love of my life and we were married in June of 2006. Since then we have brought three amazing children into this world and built our dream home. My husband and I raise cattle and turkeys and I am celebrating 10 years as a high school English teacher.
I have survived breast tumors, uteran tumors, an exploding gall bladder, and 10 years of teaching “Romeo and Juliet” to 9th graders. I have helped sponsor award-winning high school yearbooks, began a Random Acts of Kindness Club, and hosted numerous technology and curriculum workshops for fellow educators. It is with these experiences, I hope to bring insight and enlightening thoughts to those who share my works.
It is my full and honest attempt to pursue a better world because of my Intentergy.
