     self portrait

    I’m Angela Peterson.    

    I chose to become a teacher in 1996 after I was working doing data analysis for an environmental lab and working as an evening supervisor for a project at the University of MN.

    After, while working as a customer service coordinator for a veterinarian and volunteering as a naturalist working with girl and boy scouts on the weekends, I decided I loved my time volunteering

    with kids most.  I applied to the University of MN program and become a secondary science teacher.  It is hard to believe that was over 20 years ago.

    I have worked as a General Science, Earth Science, and Life Science teacher in my first 11 years; I also taught single gender classes and ELL Science classes and co taught during my first 11 years as a teacher.  

    Since working at Washington, I started out as a Life science teacher and for 5 years worked as a 9th grade physical science in high school, and now am teaching my 3rd year in Earth Science on Team 8B here at Washington.
