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.
