Anne Peterson joined the LCDS faculty in 2015. She graduated with a degree in education from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. Michigan continues to feel like home and she returns twice a year to enjoy snow drifts and the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. Before coming to LCDS, Anne taught a variety of grades in Texas, Maryland and Northern Virginia. She also worked for a member of Congress on Capitol Hill. She originally became a teacher because of her desire to make a difference in the lives of children and the opportunity to exercise her creativity. LCDS is a perfect fit for Anne because she strongly believes in a Liberal Arts education and the need to expose children to a variety of disciplines early in life. She has lived in Leesburg with her husband and three sons for almost 20 years. Anne enjoys painting watercolors, reading and binge-watching House Hunters International.
