Mrs. Wendy Petersen, RN

Hello!  I'm glad you stopped by for a minute.  My name is Wendy Petersen and I am beginning my encore career here at Aledo 9th Grade Center.   I have been in industry serving people as a Registered Nurse for 27 years. I'm really excited to shift gears join Aledo's best teachers.   Two things I love are teens and teaching about medicine.   I have been in and around Aledo for 11 years and I have subbed in every Aledo school as a nurse for the last 9. 

I grew up in New Mexico and attended New Mexico State University.  It was there that I met my super awesome extroverted husband.  We have lived in NM, OK, KS and you guessed it...Texas.  We have 4 great kids who have grown up in Aledo so we have no shortage of Bearcat pride. Two of our kids have gone through the Health Sciences pathway and I cannot say enough about what an incredible program it is.  There is a very dedicated group of teachers ready to help your kids develop their own medical pathway.   

I feel like there should be a random list of stuff I love in here somewhere so here it goes!  My family (obviously), Jesus, Chocolate, football, soccer, swimming, wake surfing, all things water, reading medical history and historical fiction, musicals, harmony, my chickens, travel, fly fishing, unsweet tea and watermelon.
