Welcome to the music room!
My name is Shelly Peterson and I am the music teacher at Jackson. I am so excited to be here this year and am enjoying getting to know all of the wonderful students at Jackson!
Teaching music is my second career and I am diving right in. I have completed Little Kids Rock training and am excited to be earning instruments for the classroom. In addition to the multi-cultural music curriculum, the classics and historical music, we will be using the ukuleles and guitars this year with contemporary music.
When I am not teaching music, I like to play my guitar and piano as well as make music with my two daughters who are 9 and 12 years old. I also like to mountain bike, hike, read, dance and get away with my husband, the adventurer.
Please feel free to reach out to me about all things music!
