Degrees and Certifications:
I am Elisabeth Petersen. I have had the fortune of teaching for eleven years at Ballentine Elementary School. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, I have a Master's degree in Language and Literacy, and I am a certified Gifted and Talented teacher. I earned both degrees through the University of South Carolina, go Gamecocks! I have had the pleasure of teaching both fourth and fifth grade. For the 2019 - 2020 school year, I will be teaching fourth grade!
I love to travel and stay active. I have had the opportunity to visit some truly amazing places around the world. I have gotten to go caving in Budapest, swim with sting rays in Cozumel, hike volcanoes in Greece! The next adventure will be to Thailand, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. I also enjoy staying active. I am often found at the gym in my spare time and look for ways to bring movement into the classroom!
Teaching is my passion and I feel truly lucky to be at the BESt school in South Carolina!
