Before she learned to read, Peggy Haslar had a little desk stuffed with papers and books. Although her desk has grown since then, it is still stuffed. Writing and reading fuel her passion for more books as well as for children, nature and her faith life as a convert to Catholicism.
Peggy taught communication arts to college freshmen for ten years before becoming a counselor. She’s worked with young children in a high poverty, rural elementary school since 2002 and was the 2007 Colorado Elementary Counselor of the Year. In 2017, she was honored by her school district as their Educator of the Year.
Peggy has written for a variety of publications and has been a Denver Post Colorado Voices columnist. She contributed an essay to Chicken Soup to Inspire a Woman’s Soul and Hearts & Hands (Inspirational Stories by School Counselors Making a Difference).
