My name is Ms. Beverly Peden. My goal is to enrich my student’s lives by increasing their knowledge of history and how those events effect their lives today. I believe that learning about our past can enable change for our future! As an educator, I also feel as if teaching involves more than knowledge of material. I want my students to learn compassion for others and their community while enjoying the experiences high school has to offer.
Teaching Background: I began my teaching career in 2010 at Westwood High School in Mesa, Az teaching Culinary Arts and Advance Culinary Arts.
