An Interview with Mr. Petersen


Emma Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief

Why did you come to Bancroft?

In the summer I moved up to Massachusetts and I was originally in New Jersey, so I moved up here and I was looking to teach somewhere and Bancroft was definitely the best school I looked at, and I’m really glad that I got a position.

What got you into teaching?

It was actually my high school calculus teacher who got me into teaching; she knew I was good at math and it would be something I’d like, and she was very right.

What is your spirit animal?

I’d have to say it’s going to be similar to a patronus right? So, a deer.

What is your favorite singer/band/genre of music?

My favorite band is Ok Go

I’ve never heard of them, but awesome!

They make cool music videos.

What is your best high school memory or most embarrassing story?

That’s a tough one. I think I’d have to say, this one time in choir class the kid behind me poured a whole packet of sugar in my hair, and it didn’t wash out for like a week.
