Miss Peterson was my second grade teacher many years ago. I was only seven years old but what I remember most about being in her class was the way she taught us songs. I remember one about living in the Sunshine State and also she taught us \"Fairest Lord Jesus\" using big cards that illustrated each phrase of the song. She was a wonderful teacher!
