Peggy Marceaux is a retired English teacher who lives in Canyon Lake, Texas. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Lamar University and her Masters of Arts from the University of Houston, where she specialized in British Literature.
Ms. Marceaux taught for 32 years; 11 in the Alvin Independent School District and 15 in the Comal Independent School District in TX, Chairing the High School English Departments in both.
Having raised chickens for twenty years, she loved the diversity among the breeds. This inspired “BeakSpeak”; a story designed to help young people accept their differences and build confidence, through speech validation. Ever the English teacher, Ms. Marceaux believes the earlier you teach children language precision, the better it will help them succeed in their future relationships and careers.
Shocked to see the ranch-hand’s face painted like a skull, the BeakSpeak chickens race to school to ask why. That’s when Ms. Goldspeak guides them through an exciting adventure learning about Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican celebration.
