Ms. Peterson studied Environmental Biology at Saint Mary’s University and discovered a love for the outdoors. She enjoys birding, hiking, biking, and anything that can be done outside. She worked in a number of different industries before deciding to go back to school to get her teaching degree. Her time at WisCorps as a crew leader and her time as a manager at a food co-op helped to shape her approach to both teaching and to life in general. Ms. Peterson enjoys getting to know students, often through board games and music, and proudly proclaims herself as a science nerd. Ms. Peterson teaches science of all sorts at Discovery and hosts a bi-weekly trading card club.
