Welcome to the 21-22 school year! I’m Jensine Peterson and it is an honor to serve as Principal of Obsidian Middle School. I believe a child’s future is in the making and that each day is an opportunity to expand their lifelong opportunity. As a fellow parent, I believe educating our children is the most important investment we make each day.
An educator since 2004, I am the first in my family to attend college. I earned my Bachelor of Science Education from Northern Arizona University and my Masters in School Administration from Concordia University. I’ve taught both middle and high school in the public and private sectors, and in both rural and urban areas. From 2013-2020, I served as Assistant Principal of Ridgeview High School and joined the Wolf Pack in 2021. I’m proud to call the Redmond School District my community.
Our mission at Obsidian is to ensure every Wolf leaves our school high school-ready and life-ready. This year, we’re excited to focus on what we do best: the business of teaching and learning. We’ll do this through using AVID strategies school-wide (ask any of us what this means!). We’ll teach your student how most grown-ups stay organized and efficient (lists, prioritization). We’ll teach every student how to stay organized using a binder that has all their supplies inside. More than ever, we know that our students are hungry for highly-effective instruction. Our incredible team is ready to deliver!
Obsidian Middle School is a learning organization. Our school operates within our own 90-day goal cycles and metrics. We push ourselves to grow, just like we ask of our students, every day. We strive to constantly improve in our ability to prepare our students for high school and beyond. Ask anytime and we can tell you what goals our school is working to achieve for student success.
Should your child or family need any support this school year, please reach out and let our team know. We stand ready to serve and to remove barriers to learning out of every child’s way.
Please introduce yourself when we have the good fortune of crossing paths! It’s an honor to partner with you in educating your scholar.
