Hello, I am Mr. David Peters. This is now my fifth year teaching English at Eastern Alamance High School. I am excited for the 2017 - 2018 school year!
A little bit about me: I am North Carolina born and bred. I grew up in Raleigh and lived in the same house with my father, mother, and sister until I graduated from high school and went to North Carolina State University. I double majored at NC State in English (with a creative writing focus) and Political Science. While at NC State, I fostered a passion for education while tutoring at a local Boys and Girls Club my freshman year, and later tutoring writing and speaking to fellow students through the NC State Writing Center. I knew I wanted to enter education.
I spent two years at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana earning a Master's Degree in English Literature and teaching Freshman Composition. I was relieved to finally graduate in 2012 after six years of college!
About me personally: I am married to my best friend whom I met in college. My hobbies include fishing, biking, soccer, and reading, and reading, and more reading. I have over seven hundred books in my library. I can normally be found during down time reading. Even though I am an English teacher, I actually read more history nonfiction than imaginative literature. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.
NOTE: All my classes will have a class website through Canvas. If you have a question regarding your son or daughter's performance in English, please do not hesitate to email me at David_Peters@abss.k12.nc.us. Thank you.
