My name is Sister Peter Marie and I am currently teaching 1st grade at St. James. This is my third year teaching at St. James. I taught 4th grade in 2019-2020 and I taught 1st grade last year. I have also taught 5th grade for three years at St. Joseph School in Lincoln.
I grew up in Kansas City, Kansas and after graduating from Blue Valley West High School, I attended the University of Nebraska – Lincoln where I grew to love my Catholic faith, St. Peter and the Sacraments. It was at UNL that I met the School Sisters of Christ the King and discerned that Jesus was calling me to be His spouse. I left UNL and entered the Community in 2009.
After four years of formation, I continued my studies at Benedictine College. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2015.
In my free time, I really enjoy spending time with my Sisters – laughing with them, organizing the pantry, vacuuming the vans, and eating meals with them. Their joy brings me closer to the Lord. I’m very much looking forward to bringing my students closer to Him too!
