Welcome to the Young 5s web page. Please visit often to see what's happening in our classroom.
My name is Peggy Brinnehl and I am the Young 5s teacher at Coloma Elementary. This is my 24th year in our district where I have taught both traditional kindergarten and the Young 5s program (previously called junior kindergarten).
I grew up in Chicago with twelve brothers and sisters. I am married to a wonderful man, Phil. We have two children, Katie and Patrick, who graduated from Coloma, but are now living in Chicago.
I graduated from Western Illinois University and received my master's degree from Western Michigan University.
When I am not working, I love to walk, read by the pool and spend time with my family and friends.
