 Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),

Hello, my name is Mrs. Peterson.  This school year, I will have the pleasure of working with your child in my 12th-grade British Literature English classroom.  I believe that all students can learn, and it is my job to ensure they have opportunities to excel.

Teaching English is my chosen profession because I enjoy teaching the material, making it come alive, and watching the students grow.  I will implement a series of rigorous activities and units designed specifically for your child's needs in language arts, and I expect this school year to be a positive experience.   My ultimate goal is for your child to accomplish achievement and growth.

If you have any questions regarding your child's progress throughout the year, please feel free to contact me at Smiths Station High School by calling (334)664-4060 between the hours of 08:00-4:00 EST Monday through Friday.  My planning period is 1st period this year.  You can also visit me on the Internet at

.  We will also be communicating via the Remind program, so be sure to sign up using the following information: English 12 Remind Code 81010 @dkpete12

 I am looking forward to a winning year here at the home of the Panthers!




Mrs. Dana Peterson
