Beatboxer, ukulele player, TED talker, playwright, and singer…those are all part of Elizabeth’s world. The concept of interdisciplinary learning isn’t just a catchphrase for Elizabeth – she makes it happen by “teaching mathematics through a theatrical and literary lens and studying English and theatre through an exploration of the math and science of our words and ourselves.” You just never know what might happen in Ms. Peterson’s classroom – she just might combine math, Shakespeare, and a little a cappella.
