Kristina A. Peterson is a high school English teacher at Exeter High School in Exeter, New Hampshire.

Like many teachers, I was inspired by my own high school English teacher to seek a career in education.  After graduating from York High School in 2001, I pursued a degree in English Literature, with a minor in Philosophy, from the University of Southern Maine.  After spending a couple of years in the work force, I moved to Portland, Oregon and completed my M.A.T. from George Fox University. I graduated in 2007, moved home to New Hampshire and began teaching at Exeter that fall.

I am a newlywed; my husband and I have been married for 8 months. I absolutely love teaching freshmen and enjoy the newness that each year brings.  I plan to take classes this summer at the UNH Literacy program and hope to always consider myself a life long learner.
