Mrs. Synnove Petersen


My name is Synnove Petersen, and I am beyond thrilled to be teaching fifth grade at Desert Sun Academy this year. I can't wait to meet all of you and get to know you. This will be my second year at DSA, and my 14th year of teaching!

We will have a fun and busy year, with lots of history, geography, reading and writing.


I was born in Norway, a small country way up north in Europe, but I have lived in Phoenix for 29 years. I love Arizona and the southwest. This will be my 14th year teaching, and I have also owned a business with my husband and raised two great kids. I have traveled all over the world, taught at many different levels, but fifth is a favorite!

Other than traveling, I love music, being with my family and I love beautiful nature- Arizona is a beautiful state!
