Ms. Madison Peterson

Hello! My name is Ms. Madison Peterson, and this semester I teach 7th Grade Life Science, 6th Grade Earth & Space Science, Introduction to Chess, and Competition Chess. I was born in Zhejiang, China, but I mostly grew up in Decatur, AL, where I currently live. I completed my internship for UAH teacher certification at Liberty and am thrilled to have been invited back! I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from Troy University and my Master of Science in Entomology (insects) from Auburn University before deciding I wanted to move from research into education. I still have my insect collection from graduate school and enjoy using it in the classroom.

I enjoy cooking, baking, and art, and I will soon be certified for teaching Computer Science. I am in the process of learning about coding and robotics, but I am excited about all the possibilities for incorporating computer science in my classroom. I am passionate about the little things in science--the important things that often get overlooked, like insects--and hope to inspire my students to observe the world a little more closely and appreciate all its complex parts.
