Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Julie Peterson
Greetings and welcome to our classroom! In second grade, I decided I was going to be a teacher. After high school I attended Eastern Illinois University, Charleston. I also have a master’s degree in educational leadership from Aurora University, in Aurora, Il and hold my National Board Certification. Over the years, I taught second, third, fourth, and sixth grades as a classroom teacher. In 2005, I made the transition to the gifted education team. After spending more than a decade in gifted education, I returned to the regular education classroom as a 4th grade teacher. I believe in meeting students where they are on the learning continuum and helping each become the best version of themselves, both in academics and in character.
