Degrees and Certifications:
Hello from Science and Makerspace! My name is Peter Ratzloff and this is my first year as a teacher at Galtier Community School. I received my B.A. from Hunter College-City University of New York and my M.Ed in Elementary Education from the University of St. Thomas.
My biggest goal is for my students to learn to think like scientists and designers. I think learning should be fun and fulfilling, so I'd like to bring hands-on, rigorous, and creative lessons that challenge my students to make connections and think in new ways.
I grew up in Minnesota and have also lived in New York, California, and Oregon. Now I live a few blocks from Galtier with my wife, dog, and cat. In my free time I like to cook, read, and spend time on projects.
