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.
