Mrs. Petersen was unique -- she was a tough teacher who was a lot of fun. She was one of my favorites for all four years of high school (drill team and English). I can still hear her laugh! I remember when Zach was born, and how she cried every time she talked about him. I am incredibly sad that she is gone.

Mrs. Peterson was the best English teacher. She was ful of spunk and fun. I always remember her laughter and the days she wore her Goofy ears. RIP Mrs. Peterson. Prayers to the family.
