Morgan Peterson

Recipients of the James Patterson Teacher Education Scholarships shared their passion for cultivating a love for reading in their students. Each scholar has a story to tell, a goal to strive for and a passion for teaching (You might call this: the Patterson passion). Morgan is a Patterson Scholar for 2017.

Morgan is an education major because she has a passion for nurturing young minds to develop a unique sense of creativity. After graduation, she would like to apply everything she has learned in her ProTeach program to create a classroom environment where students are encouraged to tell their own stories.

“Students develop the greatest sense of creativity when they are encouraged to tell their own stories. I want to foster a learning environment that allows my students to develop honest and unique characteristics, which they will use to positively impact the world around them.”
