Mrs. Becky Petersen, 8th Grade
This is my second year at St. Cecilia’s. After completing a long-term substitute position for middle school, I knew that this would be the right school for me. I am a graduate of Creighton University with a BA in Journalism and an MA in elementary education. It took me starting my professional career at a corporation to know that my true vocation would be in education.
I am a big believer in the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, which is Latin for care of the whole person. I know that our students are sons and daughters, athletes and piano players, readers and singers. I believe in recognizing the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development of each student, and feel it is my privilege to be their teacher.
