Biography

I am very excited to be back at Davis this year! This will be my 17th year as a teacher, and my eighth as a middle school teacher, and I love it!  I have taught every grade level from 3rd to 6th and love working with this age of students.  I received my bachelors degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction from Wayne State College. I have taught at Gilder Elementary, Fullerton Elementary and Saddlebrook Elementary.

I love the wonder of teaching students about history.  I love to see them grow in their knowledge of different cultures and of the history of the world!

I live in Blair with my husband, Greg, and children, Evelyn, and Jameson.  We love to go for walks with our dog or ride our bikes around our neighborhood.  In the summer we enjoy swimming, camping and visiting friends. 

Mrs. Petersen
