Degrees and Certifications:
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.
