In the fall of 1963, Peggy came to Notre Dame as a 9th grader, and with the exception of 7 years at Santa Clara University, Rome Center of Liberal Arts, and the University of Tulsa, she has been here ever since. In 1974 Peggy began teaching both Government and English. In 1987 she added yearbook to her resume and has just completed her 30th year as yearbook adviser. While over the years Peggy has taught English I, II, III, and IV, Government, and Yearbook, it seems that she had been given the opportunity to do almost everything: Student Activities Director, Senior Class Moderator, Admissions Club Adviser, Summer School Director, The Julie Billiart Project Director, Intersession Coordinator, and Director of Communication.
Peggy loves Notre Dame, and as she tells her students, “I love coming to school every day.”
What distinguishes Peggy from her colleagues is that she has had the privilege of experiencing Notre Dame as a student, as a parent (Jenny 1997), and as a teacher.
When subbing a 9th grade class she asked the students how many had mothers that she had taught, and 6 raised their hands!
