First Grade: Meet Peggy Tholen
Peggy Tholen, Teacher email
I am Peggy Tholen and I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Texas. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, and Third Grade. My husband, Mark, and I have been blessed with a daughter and son-in-law and two precious granddaughters and a son and a daughter-in-law. I enjoy reading and spending time with my wonderful family.

The best part of being a teacher is the realization that I have the opportunity and the responsibility of having a lasting impact in a child's life. It is my joy and privilege to be entrusted with this very important First Grade Instruction of your children.
