Mark Petersen

Welcome to the homepage of Mark Petersen.  I am originally from Louisiana and am a diehard New Orleans Saints fan - WHO 'DAT!!  And, oh yes, the referees routinely cheat to help the Saints' opponents, especially when we play the LA Scams - just look at the footage!

 

I was educated at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I earned Bachelor of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering, Biochemisty and Science Education. 

 

I am in my 15th year as a teacher at Smithfield-Selma High School.  I previously worked in the defense industry as an electrical engineer.  I am a member of the SSS Science Department, where I currently teach IB DP Chemistry SL to juniors, IB DP Chemistry SL to seniors, IB DP Physics SL to juniors, and also Honors Physics.  I have setup Google Classrooms for each of my classes.  You can find information pertinent to each of my classes, i.e., assignments, tests, etc., on the Google Classroom.

 

I also serve the Town of Selma as a member of the Town Council.

  • Updated Social Distancing Procedures

    Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
