Mrs. Peterson


I am Ms. Peterson and welcome to my classroom's page.  A little about myself.  I have been teaching since 2008.  My first 2 1/2 years were spent at a Charter School in Golden Valley teaching Kindergarten, 2nd and 3rd grade.  I then went for a 1/2 year to a Charter School In Stillwater where I worked in a resource room for 5-9 grade special education.  In 2011 I came to Bruce Vento as an EBD Special Education teacher working in grades K-5 for 7 years.  The last 4 years I have been working again in the General Education classrooms, I went to 3rd grade for 1 year and then now have been in 2nd grade for the last 3 years.   I recieved my Early Childhood teaching degree from Minnesota State Mankato.  I then recieved my Masters in Differentiated Instruction and my licensers in EBD and LD Special Education from Concordia St. Paul. 


 On my free time I enjoy being outdoors, golfling, reading and being with my husband, daughter, family, and friends.  Summer is my favorite time of year, so I can be outside and enjoy the sunlight. I love to read mystery books as well as funny books.  I am currently in the process of having my first Children's book published, coming out this Fall.  


I live in Hugo, Mn with my Husband, my Daughter and our Chocolate Lab Sam.  My daughter just turned 2 this summer and our dog is 3 1/2 years old. 


I love working at Bruce Vento, all of the kids are so happy and eager to learn.  Every child has something to offer our world and I cant wait to help them reach their goals.
