Lauren Peterson

4th grade Math and Science

My name is Lauren Peterson and I am very excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Farney family! I am excited to be returning to teach 4th grade this year and I LOVE math and science! This is my 5th year at Farney. 
 This will be my 13th year in the district. I have spent the last 11 years between third and fourth grade.  I graduated from Texas A&M with a BBA in Finance and I was hired by General Motors and worked for their mortgage division for a year before I left and pursued education. While working in corporate, I always had a gut feeling that I wasn't where I was meant to be. So I eventually listened to my heart and went back to school to become certified to teach. I was hired at Kirk Elementary where I was a paraprofessional and then hired as an AMIP teacher. I found my way to third and fourth grade during the next several years so I am well versed in both grades. I am so excited for this year!
I have been married to my best friend, Brian, for 14 years. We were neighbors in college and met thru a mutual friend and the rest is history. We have three beautiful kids: Riley Grace (11), Cole Matthew (9), and Ryann Elizabeth (our ever so rambunctious 6 year old). Life with three kids and full time jobs keeps us busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
