Mrs. Kim Peterson


Hello! My name is Kim Zan Peterson, and I am your child’s first grade teacher. I started my career in the business world in purchasing and planning after receiving my Bachelor of Science in Purchasing and Logistics Management from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!).  However, after spending my time volunteering as a Girl Scout Leader for my daughter, I discovered that I loved being with kids! So, I returned to college to earn my Master of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix. In the last fifteen years, I have taught first, second, and fifth grades.  This will be my first year returning to first grade after teaching fifth grade for three years.

My husband, Dan, and I have been married for 27 years. We are the proud parents of two wonderful adult daughters, Amanda and Brooke.  Where has the time gone?  During the summer we enjoy camping and hiking.  

Email is the easiest and quickest way to contact me. I will be using Blackboard to send communications home.  Since it is tied to your information in Power Schools, please be sure your information is accurate.  I will also use an app called Class Dojo.  Through it, I can reward students for positive behavior and send pictures and short videos of our classroom learning.  Of course, if you prefer, call the school to set a time to meet with me.  I am looking forward to a year of growing and learning with your student!
