Emily Peterson

3rd Grade Lead Teacher

I am delighted to begin my second year on the CWC Mar Vista team! I earned a BA in Interpersonal & Organizational Communication from Azusa Pacific University. During my time there, I served overseas a rural town in Kenya. I found a school in need of teachers, jumped into a 3rd grade teaching role, and (to my surprise) completely fell in love with the profession. I know education has the power to transform lives, and I am humbled to take part in that process.

After graduating, I moved to Orange County to attend UC Irvine where I received my teaching credentials and subsequent Masters degree. Aside from teaching, I love doing yoga, playing with my dog Remy, rooting on the UCLA basketball team, and exploring new Taco Tuesday restaurants.
