Molly Peterson



    CU-buffs-logo.pngMy name is Molly Hayes and this is my fifth year as part of the wonderful Ryan community. I have taught 4th grade for the last two years, and I am very excited to be moving to 5th grade for the 2013-2014 school year! I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. I attended the University of Colorado where I majored in psychology and elementary education and played my favorite sport, volleyball. I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Educational Equity and Cultural Diversity, also from the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!).
    When I am not in the classroom working with students, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Hiking, art, yoga, and traveling are four of my favorite hobbies, but teaching is my passion and has been for as long as I can remember. I truly feel as though I have my dream job, and I look forward to another amazing year!
