About Me

My name is Ledra M. Pegues. I am so excited to begin this school year with you at Kingsbury High School.   I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. I graduated from Xavier University of Louisiana and received my teaching certification from Union University in Jackson, TN. I have 20 years teaching experience. I am currently  ELA Content Lead and English I/ English I Honors teacher.


I believe that reading and writing are important fundamentals of an ELA curriculum. I enjoy teaching and have an open door policy when it comes to communication. I want my parents and students to always feel free to email, call, or text me with any concerns or questions that they may have. I want to make sure that we all are successful and achieve our goals for this school year.
