Jamie Petersen

Teachers - Kindergarten

Key Roles

Hello, my name is Mrs. Petersen but it is rare for anyone to call me that, instead I am simply known as Mrs.P. I am passionate about little people and early learning. Connections and attachments are so important at this young age and stage, and I work hard to create a classroom that supports and encourages both of these. This is my sixth year teaching at Ross Ford and my fourteenth (yikes) year of Kindergarten.  That ages me a little, but I truly still love how I get to spend my days.

In my other life I am busy raising three teenage girls with my husband Rick. We live in Olds and love small town life.  Our schedule is full, but in the best way. We love to do a lot of travelling and we are enjoying these years when our kids are such cool and interesting people.  My part time position allows me to spend all this good time with my kids, but I get to teach and do this work that is so very important to me too.  It’s a good balance and I am lucky to do both.
