Meet Peggy Burkdoll
My name is Peggy (Mahar) Burkdoll. I was born in Eureka, Kansas. I went to Kindergarten while living in Eureka. In June of 1964, my family moved to Waverly, Kansas where I continued my education and graduated from Waverly High School. I attended Emporia State University and received my Bachelor of Education degree in December 1980.
While in college, I married my high school sweetheart, Dave Burkdoll. We have three sons, Jeff, Aaron, and Daniel. Jeff, Stacy, Haley, Sophie, and Sydney live in Emporia. Aaron, Jenn, Sean, and Daysha live in Topeka. Daniel, Erin, and Brynn live by Melvern.
After graduating from college, I substitute taught for 2 ½ years. In August of 1983, I began teaching Kindergarten in the Marais des Cygnes Valley school district. I taught Kindergarten for, 3rd grade, 2nd grade, 4th grade, and I am currently teaching 5th grade. (Some of my colleagues are former students!! Yes, that makes me feel old!!!)
You might see me at the home ballgames at the score table. I keep the clock for volleyball and basketball games. I also announce at the track meets MdCV hosts.
When I am not busy helping at school I enjoy shopping and traveling with my sisters. One of the items on my “bucket list” is to visit all 50 states. I enjoy coming back to class and sharing my trips with my students.
But the greatest joy in life is spending time with our granddaughters!!!!!!!!
