Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Yvonne Petrie

I love teaching second and third grade. Previously, I worked as a Special Education Para, Reading/Math Interventionist, and Elementary Secretary at Fowler Schools. I attended Pueblo Community College to earn my Associates degree in Business/Management and spent two years as a bookkeeper for a trucking company. I missed working with children so I went to work for Edison school as a Special Education Para for eight years. I left to finish my teaching degree through CSU-Pueblo. I taught third grade in La Junta for two years. Last year, I was thrilled to come back to Edison. My teaching philosophy is to build relationships with each student, and help them learn. I believe children learn best when they are having fun and I love to let my students do projects. I consider it a privilege to teach your children, and I promise to treat them with respect, and to use all of my energy and resources to prepare them for the next grade level.

I have been married 40 years to my husband, Randy, who farms and ranches. Together we have two adult children and four grandchildren. When I'm not helping out on the farm/ranch, or spending time with our grandkids, I enjoy reading, quilting, arrowhead hunting, and furniture refinishing.
