Ms. Pederson's Background
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. - Benjamin Franklin
I am originally from Eagan, MN, but grew up spending summers swimming and fishing in northern Wisconsin.
I attended Grinnell College, in Grinnell, IA, where I was a history major and obtained my secondary teaching credential for both English and Social Studies. After graduating, I moved to Lesotho and taught MS/HS in Southern Africa. I then taught HS English for two years at Timber Lake before moving to Onida. This is my second year teaching at Sully Buttes. I love hiking, swimming, baking bread, and traveling when I am not busy with school.
My favorite writers include Sherman Alexie, Arundhati Roy, Tim O'Brien, Louise Erdrich, Gabriel García Márquez, and Louis L'Amour. In addition to teaching, I will be co-advising yearbook and oral interp this year, along with directing the One Act Play.
