Bienvenida  Bonjour   ترحيب   Yōkoso   Willkommen   Chào mừng  Huānyíng  

    Hello and thank you for visiting my website!  I have been a member of the Scarlett Nation since 2003.  I have served Scarlett as a Physical Education/Health Teacher, Athletic Director, and Coordinator of the Mitchell-Scarlett-University-of-Michigan Partnership. Currently, I lead this community as the Assistant Principal.

    During my time here, I have restructured the PE curriculum and Athletic Department.  I have helped bring in two school-wide initiatives: The first, Word Generation, a school-wide academic vocabulary program.  The second, Developmental Designs, a social-emotional approach to teaching and learning.  I am very excited to continue the work in these areas and to help launch Scarlett as an International Baccalaureate World School in 2017-2018!

    A little background about me...I received my Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education, Health and Sports Medicine from The University of Michigan in 2001.  I earned my Master's Degrees in Adapted Physical Education from The Ohio State University in 2002.  I completed my Ed Specialist's Degree in Educational Leadership at Eastern Michigan University in 2013 and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Educational Leadership at EMU.  

    I am extremely passionate about working with Scarlett students and families. My number one goal is to create a safe and supportive environment that promotes independent, responsible learners, who are compassionate, internationally minded and physically active citizens.  I consider myself an activist for social justice within the system of education and I am committed to making decisions that are in the best interest of students.

    Please contact me if you have any questions or further information about Scarlett.

Educationally yours, 

Ms. Peterson
