Mrs. Rhonda Peterson

Welcome to 8 Red Math!

I am excited to be starting my third year at Lewis-Palmer Middle School.  I attended the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs where I earned a BS in Applied Mathematics with special honors and a MS in Forensic Science with an emphasis on Toxicology.  I have been teaching math and science since 1998 and enjoy being in the classroom and meeting new students every year. 

Math can be easy for some students while posing a challenge for others.  I believe all students are capable of learning math at a high level with the appropriate help and a lot of determination, perseverance and will power to keep trying.  As Thomas Edison said, "The most certain way to succeed is to try one more time."  I will be your child's biggest supporter encouraging and challenging them to keep tackling new and more complex concepts.  I am looking forward to an amazing year facilitating your child's growth in mathematics.
