Margaret (nickname - Peggy) Mary Ployhar
Peggy Ployhar, SPED Homeschool Founder & CEO, is a physicist turned home educator who left a lucrative career in the medical device industry to teach the struggling learners in her own home after her oldest son’s diagnosis with Asperger Syndrome.
Peggy founded SPED Homeschool in 2017 after working for over a decade as a special needs homeschooling consultant and while home educating her own struggling learners. She now leads an organization that empowers thousands of families across the globe each year to teach their struggling learners at home.
Peggy is the former THSC (Texas Home School Coalition) Special Needs Team Lead, MACHE (Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators) Special Needs Coordinator and MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Area Coordinator for MN, ND and SD.
