Mrs. Wendy Petersen, RN

Hello!  I'm glad you stopped by for a minute.  My name is Wendy Petersen excited about my encore career here at Aledo 9th Grade Center.   I have been serving people as a Registered Nurse for 28 years. Teaching was not something I was looking for but it found me!   Two things I love are teens and teaching about healthcare, both unexpected passions.   I have been in Aledo for 13 years and I have worked in nearly every Aledo school as a substitute nurse for nine of those years.  

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 grew up in Aledo Schools, so we have no shortage of Bearcat pride.

Two of my own kids have gone through the Health Science pathway and I cannot say enough about what an incredible program it is.  As a result, my kids are well on their way to health care careers of their own.  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 here somewhere, so here it goes!  My family (obviously), Jesus, Chocolate, YoungLife, 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.
