Mrs. Peterson

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Peterson and I am so thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher!  It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures.   Here are a few things about me.


I began my teaching career 20 years ago.    I have always loved working with young children and fortunately during my student teaching, I was able to work in a first grade classroom.  I began teaching in another district in a second and third grade combination classroom.  The following year I moved to a third grade classroom and continued that for another year.  I always yearned for an opportunity to teach first grade, so when I was offered a position in this district at J. R. Tibbott, I happily joined the team.  After a year, I was excited to join B.J. Ward and continue my journey in first grade.  I taught first grade for a number of years, tried out second grade for a bit, and then remembered how much I loved first grade and returned! 


I am married and have two adorable, crazy boys.  My oldest, Brodie, is in sixth grade and my baby, Zander, is in third grade. They always keep me on my toes!  I am sure you will hear many stories about them!


I am happy your child is a part of the PK Pack and would like to thank you for trusting me to guide your child’s education.  I will do all that I can to help your child succeed.  I look forward to working with you and your child this schoolyear.
