Speaker: INGRID PETERSON – BIO
Ingrid Peterson is from Kailua, Hawaii. She earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology at Stanford, with a concentration in Developmental Psychology. Ingrid has dedicated much of her professional career to education, teaching from preschool through high school levels, first as an educator at Bing Nursery School, Laboratory Preschool of the Psychology Department at Stanford University. In recent years, she taught primarily at the middle and high school levels, working in both special education and general education classes.
Between teaching careers, Ingrid worked for nine years as a Hawaiian history research assistant for historians and Hawaii’s Bishop Museum. When she had her son at age 40, she chose to become an at-home mother, but volunteered in her son’s schools until she was hired in special education at his elementary school (Malibu, CA). Two years ago, Ingrid retired to the home she grew up in in Hawaii, and she stays busy restoring its gardens while her husband helps restore the house. At age 66, she has reached a happy, calm stage of her life.
