Mrs. Amanda Peterson
Hi! My name is Amanda Peterson, and I will be
teaching first grade this year. I am excited to be back at
St. Patrick School. I taught preschool at Little Knights for 9
years before taking 4 years off to stay at home with my
kids. During that time I also did a lot of substitute teaching
at both St. Pat’s and McCook public schools. I have spent a
lot of time in my classroom over the summer, so I am excited
to finally have kids in my room so we can begin an exciting
new “Adventure” in first grade!
I am married to Aaron Peterson who is an engineering
tech. at W Design Associates here in McCook. He is
also a full-time student as he is going to school to pursue his
degree to become a civil engineer. Between work and
school we also stay very busy with our 5 kids! Andrew is
now a sophomore at McCook Senior High. Sara in an
eighth-grader, Rebecca is a sixth-grader, and Hannah is a
third-grader here at St. Patrick School. Our youngest
daughter Lexi is 4 and will be starting preschool at Little
Knights in a few weeks! I love to bake, run, and play/
watch/coach softball and spend time with my family!
I am thrilled to start this new school year, and I
look forward to all that God has in store for us this year!
