Welcome to Room 202!
Beautiful Germany

Welcome to first grade!  My name is Megan Peterson but the students call me “Mrs. Megan.”   This is my eighth-year teaching in Minneapolis and my first year at Hale.  I’ve taught Kindergarten, first, and second grades.  I am honored to be your child’s first grade teacher this year and know we will have an exciting, successful, and fun year!


A Little About Me

The past 2 years I was exploring, learning, growing, and traveling while living in Munich Germany with my husband, son (Artie), and dog Bailey.

  We moved back to Minnesota this past winter to prepare for our twins to arrive.  Harald and Matilda are now 6 months old and Artie is 3.  We used to live in the Hale community so you can still catch us around Lake Nokomis often, but we are now living in Saint Paul.  When I'm not busy with teaching and family, I love to play music.  I’ve played the violin for 20+ years and play on and off with the Kenwood Symphony Orchestra. I’m looking forward to finding out more about your child and family this year!

You are an integral part of your child’s education

and I feel that home-school communication is vital.  Please E-mail me with any questions any time, I'm always happy to hear from you.  Let's work together to make this a great school year!
