Mrs. Kim Peterson


Hello! My name is Kim Zan Peterson, and I am your child’s fifth 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!). I enjoyed my job, but felt unfulfilled. My time spent volunteering as a Girl Scout Leader for my daughter was so much more rewarding! So, I returned to college to earn my Master of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix. I have been teaching first and second grades since I started teaching 14 years ago.  This will be my third year teaching fifth grade.

My husband, Dan, and I have been married for 26 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. If you prefer, call the school to set up a time to meet with me.  I will also have resources and information posted on this website.  I am looking forward to a year of growing and learning with your student!
