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.
