• My name is Valeka Petersen and I am the Media Specialist at Jefferson Elementary. I have been teaching in the Anoka-Hennepin School District for 20 years, however this is only my 2nd year as a Media Specialist. I live in Blaine with my husband Mike, son Jeremy (17), daughter Taylor (15), and daughter Isabella (4). Outside of reading, I love to bake, go on camping adventures, and spend time in my home town of Richey, Montana with my parents and extended family.
