Mrs. Gwen Peturis

I have loved teaching for 24 years!  I taught kindergarten for the first 10 years and third grade for the past 14 years.  I value the opportunity to be a part of a child's educational experience.  I treasure the new families and friends I get to know each year.  Thank you for sharing your children with me this 2020-2021 school year.


Some personal history:  I grew up in Fairhope and graduated from Fairhope High School.  However, both my parents attended Daphne Elementary School as children in the 1940's.  This is a wonderful community and I am proud to be a part of it as a teacher.  

Family:  I have been married for 42 years, I have 3 children (and 2 daughter-in-laws, 1 son-in-law) and 5 grandchildren.  When I'm not teaching, I am enjoying my wonderful family!
