Hello! I’m Rachel Peachey. Welcome to my website and blog that includes a smattering of everything from parenting adventures to educational philosophies and the little library I have helped begin.
Professionally, I dedicate myself to writing. My specialty areas are education, parenting and coffee. It seems like an interesting mix, I know, but here’s the back story:
Originally from Lancaster, PA, I’ve always been a curious and adventurous type. I completed my university studies in International Development at the University of Guelph in Southern Ontario. Then, after gallivanting around Central America, I found my way to Guatemala. There, I began teaching ESL and completed a degree as a Lower Elementary Montessori Teacher through NAMC. I taught at a bilingual Montessori school for nearly 4 years. That explains my expertise in education. Incidentally, I also met my husband here in Guatemala. He is a coffee farmer. That explains my coffee obsession. And finally, for parenting, we now have 2 children, a boy, born in 2013 and a girl born in 2015. I am enjoying the journey with all of its joys, challenges, struggles, and laughs.

In addition to the blog on this website, I’ve developed a small list of some of my favorite work:
How to Follow Your Child – I’ve written quite a bit for this website, feel free to snoop around!
Montessori Method: Classroom Management Tips for All Teachers – I’ve also written a number of articles for this site. Take a look!
