Meet Mrs. Petras

Welcome! My name is Lisa Petras (and my last name is pronounced with a long E...Pea-tris). I graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in elementary education. I also have a K-12 reading certificate from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I have been a teacher in Minneapolis Public schools since 2007 and a 4th grade classroom teacher since 2009. 2013 was my first year at Howe School. I live in South Minneapolis with my husband, Adam. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking...and running! I ran the Twin Cities Marathon in 2012 and 2013. 

I love teaching fourth grade and look forward to working with you (and your child) to make fourth grade a positive, memorable year with lots of opportunities for learning.
