  • Meet The Teacher

    Just a little bit about me...

    Hello!  My name is Mrs. Nisa  Peters.  I am looking forward to being your first grade teacher this year.  We will be working very closely together and I know we will learn many new things from each other.  Let me tell you a little about myself.

         First, I was born in  Chicago, and then moved to a small town.....Robinson, Illinois...home of Heath Candy and Marathon Oil.  I moved to St. Louis when I was in ninth grade.  I graduated from Parkway North Senior High.  I graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1983.  I married, and moved to Colorado where I taught kindergarten.  We then moved to Pennsylvania where I also taught kindergarten.  I moved back to St. Louis in 1989 and began teaching at Carrollton Oaks as a kindergarten teacher.  The following year I began teaching second grade.  I then moved to Drummond Elementary teaching all grade levels.  I have taught for a total of thirty years and look forward to teaching you this year.

         I am a mom of two sons, Tanner and Connor.  Tanner lives in Springfield, MO and Connor just graduated and was a collegiate swimmer for Western Illinois University.  I have been a team mom for soccer, baseball, basketball, football, and swim teams.  I chaperoned school dances, parties and just about anything else they found for me to do.  Reading is a favorite hobby of mine.  Amy Grant is my all time favorite performer.  I have seen her many times in Colorado, Pennsylvania, and here in St. Louis.  I also met her once in St. Louis.
