She was inspired to pursue special education after the birth of her first daughter, who has special needs. Over the course of her career, Ms. Peevey has largely attributed her success to her ability to listen to her students and her willingness to try new things in the classroom environment. To wit, she always remains abreast of new research in her field and uses it to develop new methods of teaching. In the coming years, Ms. Peevey hopes to continue helping younger teachers by improving teaching standards and developing new special education curricula.
