Hi! My name is Katie Peterson, and I am so excited to be joining the staff at Hygiene! I am originally from Upstate New York, where I completed my undergrad at SUNY Geneseo in Elementary Education with Special Education. I have been working as a special education and classroom teacher in Champaign, Illinois for the last five years, and recently earned a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Illinois. In my free time I love to read, play or watch basketball, and hang out with friends and family in the mountains. It is so important to me to meet the diverse needs of all learners in my classroom, while developing lifelong learners. I became a teacher because of my amazing first grade teacher, and therefore I am so looking forward to a great year in first grade!
