Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Peter Ratzloff and I am a teaching resident in Ms. Earnest’s class this year. I will be in class with your scholar for the full day Tuesdays through Fridays this year. I have a bachelor’s degree in English from Hunter College-City University of New York and am currently working toward a master’s degree in Elementary Education at the University of Saint Thomas through SPPS’s SUTR program.
After eight years in the corporate world as a technology and finance project manager, I decided to shift careers and go back to my dream, teaching our future leaders. I am passionate about the power of education and am thrilled to be part of the Maxfield community this year. I am especially interested in helping students develop their critical thinking, technology skills, and creativity because I believe these are the most important tools they can have for their future.
I look forward to spending this year with your scholar and hope to meet you soon if I haven’t already.
