Early Childhood Teacher
Hi! My name is Anna Peters. I am a sophomore at Montana State studying psychology and coaching. I hope to get a masters in either developmental psychology or sports psychology and work with high school students/athletes. I am from Burlingame, California, which is just a little bit south of San Francisco. I am super happy to be in Montana, but only wish that my parents and younger brother weren’t so far away. My family is very close and we love to surf, ride bikes and hike by the ocean together! I also enjoy skiing, paddleboarding, yoga, running and baking/cooking.
I have always loved babysitting and regularly babysat for several families starting in middle school. I have also coached youth basketball for seven years, starting alongside my mom in her private basketball business and then in high school I coached girls basketball through the Burlingame Parks and Rec. This past summer I provided specific reading intervention tutoring for an elementary-aged child.Through that tutoring I learned that my favorite thing about working with children is seeing and recognizing the small improvements that occur daily.
Some of my favorite childhood memories are going to bike races and cycling events with my family and watching the Tour de France on tv. My dad is a former pro cyclist, so I basically grew up around the cycling industry. Sometimes my dad would be in the races and other times my brother and I would be in the kids races. The atmosphere was always so electric and fun; my favorite races were a halloween costume cycle-cross race, the Tour of California and the Boise Twilight Criteriums!
