Suzanne M. Peck joined the SERVE Center in the spring of 2022 and is a Program Specialist with the National Center for Homeless Education. She has dedicated herself to “Saving the world, one reader at a time” after working in a juvenile corrections facility and realizing that most of this population struggled to be able to read. She has worked with at-risk populations and programs ever since at the school, district, state, and now the national level. She realizes how difficult it is to teach a child when they are hungry, tired, or experiencing trauma. She received a Bachelor’s degree from Utah State University and has been an educator dedicated to serving the most vulnerable students for over 20 years.
