The Windham Eagle student of the week is Elizabeth Petersen, an eighth grader at Jordan-Small Middle School. Elizabeth loves math. She also enjoys playing guitar, doing photography and writing songs.
When she grows up she wants to be a marine biologist or a musician. “Education is important because in order to have a job eventually and be able to have what I need to survive, I need a good education,” Elizabeth said.
“When I’m not in school, I’m at home or a friend’s house geeking out doing music stuff,” she said.
“Elizabeth is extremely helpful with other students who need assistance. She is always courteous to peers and teachers and always comes to class with a smile on her face. Elizabeth excels in class and is very hard working and conscientious in her studies. One of her peers said, ‘I believe that Elizabeth should be honored because she is really kind to everyone and tries her best to be a problem solver,’” said the team at JSMS who chose her.
Elizabeth is the daughter of Jenn and Chris. He has a sister named Lilly and a dog named Clover.
