Miss Casey Peterson

Hello! My name is Casey Peterson and this is my second year here at Kate Waller Barrett Elementary School. I am originally from Brunswick, Ohio, which is a small city near Cleveland. I have two older sisters named Alex and Lauren. I also am an Aunt to two handsome nephews.

Growing up, I spent most of my childhood in a dance studio. I was a dancer for about sixteen years, starting at the age of two. At the ago of tweleve, I became a student teacher for tap and ballet classes at the preschool and kinder levels. I continued to teach dance classes throughout my senior year of high school. 

For as long as I can remember, I have always dreamed of becoming an educator. In May of 2018, I graduated from the University of Akron with a dual degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education for pre-kindergarten through third grade. Although it was a far move, the opportunity to teach at this AMAZING school is what brought me here to Virginia. With that being said, I am extremely excited to get to know all of my students and to watch their love of learning grow!
