•       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 an Instructional Technology Specialist Certification. This will be my 13th year teaching at Gray's Woods (Days 2-5) and my first at Ferguson Township (Day 1). My wife, Mrs. Petersen, usually teaches 2nd grade at Gray's Woods and we have 4 kids at home; three daughters and our newborn son.
