Mrs. Amy Peters
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
My name is Amy Peters. I teach 2nd grade. I have had the privilege of working in the Campbell R-II School district since 2001. My favorite thing about teaching is seeing a smile on a child’s face when they learn something new! I have always enjoyed teaching young children. I have two wonderful daughters who have made me want to become a better person and teacher. I stay super busy on a daily basis helping them with homework and taking them to after school activities. My family enjoys swimming at the lake/river and riding four wheelers together.
