Mrs. Megan (Peterson)

Welcome to Team 202!

Welcome to first grade! My name is Megan Peterson but the students call me “Mrs. Megan.” This is my 9th year teaching in Minneapolis and my 2nd year at Hale. I’ve taught Kindergarten, first, and second grades. I am honored to be your child’s first grade teacher this year and know we will have an exciting, successful, and fun year!

A Little About Me

I live in the Highland Neighborhood with my husband Dave, 4 year old son Artie, and 18 month old twins Harald and Matilda; along with our dog Bailey. We love living abroad and have lived in South Korea and in Munich Germany. Living in Germany has inspired me to embrace the biking lifestyle, so you may catch me biking to school or biking my kids in our Cargo Bike. When I have any free time I also enjoy playing the violin and have played for 20+ years. I’m looking forward to finding out more about your child and family this year!

Team 202

Welcome to our team! You are an integral part of your child’s education and I feel that home-school communication is vital.

I'm always happy to hear from you, so please don't hesitate to reach out!


Make sure to check out our learning on Class Dojo! We love to post pictures and our learning!

I will also send home weekly E-mails and Wednesday folders to help keep my families in the know!
