Andrea Peterson, 5th Grade Teacher

I am so excited to be teaching fifth grade at St. Dominic School! I was a Northfield High School graduate, and I am excited to have the opportunity to be teaching in the community I grew up in! I was very active in gymnastics, cross-country, and many of the youth formation groups and activities at St. Dominic Church. Being on team sports and participating in activities through the church community in high school and college instilled the importance of teamwork, responsibility, respect, compassion, and faith in my everyday life and teaching.

I graduated from St. Cloud State and have my Masters in Literacy Education from Hamline University. Before moving back to Northfield, I taught 4th and 5th grade in Spring Lake Park for seven years. My husband Kris and I have two children – Walter and June. During my free time I enjoy exploring the Arb, watching Walter play baseball, June do gymnastics and dance, going on bike rides, going for walks, doing yoga, reading and spending time with friends and family!

I look forward to all the new experiences we will share this year!
