Mrs. Peterson, one of our fabulous first grade teachers, grew up in Idaho Falls and attended Longfellow Elementary School. Her favorite place to go on vacation is anywhere about 8,000 feet – that’s up in the mountains. She enjoys skiing, being in the snow, (lots of snow) anywhere in the mountains. Her greatest accomplishment is living in the New York City area for 27 years. She says that it was quite an adventure. What you might not know about her is that she did a 14-mile hike in Yosemite National Park in California over her Spring Break.
