Tess Peterson

3rd Grade

Tess graduated with her master's degree in Elementary Education from Quinnipiac University in 2007. This is Tess's 14th year in the classroom. She began her career in Utah teaching 2nd grade for 6 years. Then she moved to Vermont and became an Academy Star. She taught 5th grade for 5 years and has been teaching 3rd grade for the last 2 years. She loves the infectious enthusiasm that students bring to the classroom and works hard to make each day fun and exciting for her students and making sure her students feel a sense of belonging.

Third grade is an exciting year filled with deep thinking, expansive learning, and tons of fun!  It’s a big transition year.   This is the year students begin to apply foundational skills in reading, writing, and math in order to learn about the world around them.  We are committed to fostering independence, positive peer relationships, math problem solvers, scientific thinkers, and engaged writers.
