Suzanne Peck

Idaho Homeless Education & Neglected/Delinquent/At-Risk Coordinator
Idaho State Department of Education

Suzanne M. Peck has dedicated her life to “Saving the world, one reader at a time” after working in the St. Anthony 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 in numerous capacities at the school, district, and now at the state level as the Idaho State Coordinator for Title IX-A Homeless Education and Title ID Neglected, Delinquent, & At-Risk programs.  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 20 years.
