Mrs. Peavler says, "I love to read! If I finish a book and it seemed too short, I know it’s a good one! My favorite author is David Sedaris. I enjoy riding my bike Bluebell and relaxing in the sunshine. If a movie is a winner at the Sundance Film Festival, chances are I’ll like it. If I were stranded on an island, I’d hope it was inhabited by lots of friendly dogs to keep me company. I volunteer at 10 Thousand Villages, Eastern Illinois Foodbank, and The Humane Society. I feel like a happy smile is contagious, especially if it comes from one of my students!"
