Ms. Peterson

Hi!  I’m Tammy Peterson.  I will be providing instruction for Reading/Language Arts for 6th through 8th grades and Social Studies for 6th through 8th grades.  I have a Master’s Degree in Teaching Students with Learning Disabilities from Francis Marion University, and I have earned an additional +30 certification in Technology for the Classroom.

I began my teaching career in the Darlington County School District where I was named Teacher of the Year for Brunson-Dargan Elementary School and was a finalist for Darlington County School District’s Teacher of the Year.   I taught Academic Enrichment for grades 4th, 5th and 6th, as well as at Darlington High School before coming to Florence 1 Schools to teach.  This is my is my first year as a Moore Lion and I am excited to be here. 

I have an adult son, and a 6 year old granddaughter. I enjoy spending time with my granddaughter looking for fairies in her fairy garden.  I'm an avid Carolina Gamecock football fan and can usually be found cheering on my team most Saturdays in the fall at Williams Brice Stadium.  I collect Wizard of Oz ornaments, enjoy reading and doing crossword puzzles, and love spending time at the beach. 

 Welcome to my class!  I look forward to working with you this school year.
