Peterman Named Twin City Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Year

We congratulate Midvale 5th Grade English Language Arts Teacher and Assistant Indian Valley Varsity Football Coach, Mr. Chad Peterman.  Mr. Peterman was recently honored as the Twin City Chamber of Commerce Teacher Of The Year, 2019.

Mr. Peterman is the fourth esteemed Indian Valley educator in just four years to be lauded as Teacher Of The Year at either the local, district, regional or state level.

Superintendent Ira Wentworth nominated Mr. Peterman not only because he is an outstanding classroom teacher and an incredible coach, but also for his positive, can-do attitude.  Mr. Peterman has drawn both children and adults to become part of the solution when facing any given challenge.

One of Mr. Peterman’s claims to fame has been dreamer, designer and expert behind The Accelerated Reader Auction.  Mr. Peterman imagined that if students could become active, engaged readers, they would build confidence the old-fashioned way - they’d earn it!  Not only that, they could win lots of prizes as well. Mr. Peterman was able to make his dream a reality when he convinced community members and businesses to donate between $8,000.00 and 10,000.00 for student reading rewards in just one year!

Like fire, Mr. Peterman’s idea caught on at Port Washington Elementary.  Next year, both Midvale and Port Washington students in grades K-5 will come together and participate in this most exciting celebration of dedication!  Through his enthusiasm and success, Mr. Peterman has created more leaders who want to witness students grow as lifelong readers!

Congratulations to Mr. Chad Peterman - Fourth Indian Valley Teacher of The Year in Four Years!
