Karen Peterson - Best wishes in your retirement!

I want to thank a special teacher as she moves on to the life of retirement. Karen Peterson has been a Kindergarten teacher at Bancroft for 10 years and in the Minneapolis District for 21 years. She truly cares about her students as whole children. Not only is each child's academic growth important to her, but so is their social and emotional growth. I want to personally thank Karen for all she has done to teach the students at Bancroft, and wish her well as she begins her new adventure.
