Peggy Larrick

Assistant Professor,
Education

Peggy Larrick earned her Bachelors’ of Science in Home Economics at Miami University University, majoring in Home Economics Education. She has taught in rural areas for over 30 years. During that time, she taught high school home economics, was a director/teacher at a private pre-school, served as an elementary intervention specialist, taught second grade, and was a kindergarten teacher.

While in her role as teacher, she earned a Masters’ of Education in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment from Walden University, as well as a principle licensure at Xavier University. She recently completed a full-time Educational Leadership doctorate program in Leadership, Culture, and Curriculum at Miami University.  During her 3 years at Miami, she served as a teaching assistant and taught a teacher leadership course which prepared pre-service teachers to become critical social justice advocates. After graduation, Peggy returned to teach in her home district as an intervention specialist for students in grades 3-5.

In 2018, Peggy began her role as an assistant professor at Wilmington College bringing with her years of experience as an early childhood educator. Larrick’s scholarly work is dedicated to reconceptualizing rural education with an interest in what it means to live in a particular place and how place-based experiences influence how the curriculum is planned, implemented, and received. She is dedicated to the practice of critical reflection and seeks every opportunity to encourage teachers, both in-service and those preparing for service, to engage in self-reflective practices.
