Mr. Preston Peterson
This is my 25th year in education. I taught math and science at Taylor Jr. High for 13 years and then moved to Mesa High where I continued to teach math for another 9 years. During this time, I coached wrestling for 20 years both at the Junior High and High School level as well as taught math at the college level in the evenings at MCC. I am currently serving as an assistant principal at Mesa High over student activities, which includes student council and clubs. I also oversee the junior class.
I am a native of Mesa and graduated from Westwood High, (class of '87). I went on to earn an associate degree in electrical engineering technology. I graduated from ASU in 1996 as a Math major and emphasis in Physics. I earned my Masters in Education Leadership from NAU in 2001.
In my spare time, (I'll clarify this as non "school" time...I don't have much spare time),
I love to spend time in the outdoors: camping, hiking, kayaking, playing sports and spending time with my awesome family, a beautiful wife and four fantastic kids. I've always had an incredible curiosity of how things work. I enjoy discovery and building with my hands.
Mesa High has been an exceptional place to work!
