Mrs. Megan Petersen

 1st Grade Teacher Assistant

Personal Background

I grew up in New Berlin, Wisconsin.  I attended Star of Bethlehem from Kindergarten - 8th grade, and I am so happy to be back working at this amazing school.  I continued my education at Wisconsin Lutheran High School and then went on to study at Wisconsin Lutheran College.  In 2019, I married Quinten Peterson, who is the director of bands at Wisconsin Lutheran High School.  We have a chocolate lab, Louie.

I love spending my free time in the kitchen baking bread and sweet treats.  Whenever we get the opportunity, my husband and I love to travel and have visited many places in the United States and Canada.
