About Mrs. Quinn
This is my 3rd year at Peterson as a second grade teacher!  Prior to that, I taught 6th graders for 8 years!  I spent 5 of those years teaching English Language Arts and Social Studies, while the last 3 years I was a reading specialist.  I am beyond excited to spend another year at Peterson with an awesome 2nd grade class!  My husband, Ryan, and I recently celebrated our two-year anniversary this summer.  We love spending time with our friends and family, including our 8 month old son, Colin, and black German Shepherd, Maddie!  We love the beach, the Blackhawks and the Cubs, and watching our baby boy grow up- it goes way too fast!
