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 Poplar 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 teacher and, as a result of one of my substitute positions, I was secretly matched-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 work together to run our farming operation raising cattle, turkeys, and horses.
I have survived breast tumors, uterine tumors, an exploding gall bladder, and 10 years of teaching The Tragedy of 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. The last few years I’ve taught as a Communications Instructor at State Technical College of Missouri in Linn, Mo. Now I am farming, raising our family, and creating Intentergy full time. 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.
