World Travelers Ann & Doug Peters travel to JF Webb High School

Ann Peters has an M.Ed. in Learning, Teaching, and Curriculum with a focus in TESOL and has worked with English Language Learners (ELLs) for the last twelve years. She has taught in Asia, Europe, and America and has experience with students from age three through adult. Ms. Peters has been working for Granville Public Schools since 2018, but before that she taught for Vance Granville Community College and the University of Missouri. She has also worked at CG Credle Elementary School, Stovall Shaw Elementary School, Mary Potter Middle School, and Granville Central High School. Her biggest challenge coming to JF Webb was learning the names of all the teachers and students. She also got lost a few times. What she loves the most about JF Webb is her students and she absolutely adores her Webb classes.

Doug Peters is originally from Edison, NJ. He has been in the classroom for over 20 years, teaching all ages from pre-K to Kindergarten, elementary, middle, high school, university, and adults. He has taught on three continents, starting at his old high school in the US and ranging from a Greek island in the Mediterranean to the Korean Peninsula. When not teaching social studies, he enjoys spending time with his family. His biggest challenge? "Despite my experience, it's like starting at year 1 again. Having to create many lesson plans from scratch given the new schedule (including a class I've never taught before and one I haven't taught since 2015) is a big part of most of my prep time both in school and at home." He is excited to be at Webb, where public education offers students more opportunities than they would get at other schools. He also likes how admin is very active in the school in supporting the students and teachers.
