Meet Mr. Petersen
Welcome to STEM!
I am very excited about the start of a new school year and just wanted to tell you a bit about myself.
I was born and raised outside of Pittsburgh, about 10 miles south of the city (in the South Hills). I went to Penn State in 2005 and graduated in 2009 with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education. I also have a Master's Degree in Educational Technology and am a certified Instructional Technology Specialist. I am also currently pursuing my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. This school year (2023/24) will be my 15th year teaching at Gray's Woods (Days 2-5) and my 2nd at Ferguson Township (Day 1). My wife, Mrs. Petersen teaches 2nd grade at Gray's Woods and we have 4 kids at home; three daughters and a son.
