Brittany Peterson and Caradee Reilly

Welcome to 2nd Grade in Room 301

happy teachers
Hello!! We are Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Reilly and we are thrilled to be your new teachers! Mrs. Peterson has now been teaching for 7 years at Joli Ann Leichtag Elementary and Mrs. Reilly has now been teaching for 8 years.  We both love being a part of the JAGUAR team. We know that you are all excited to be moving into your second grade year and believe us, it is going to be a year full of fun and memories, as well as a lot of hard work! We feel so honored to be the ones to guide you through it all. We know that you all will persevere through the year and learn to not only live the JAGUAR way but to become a community of leaders who are dedicated to always trying your best.


We are sure you have a lot of questions about us and we know we will truly get to know each other as we become a family in room 301, but here are a few fun facts about us:

Mrs. Peterson:

I was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. I have one younger sister and two younger brothers. I graduated from Vanguard University of Southern California with a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts, and went right back to get my teaching credential the next year! Right after graduation I got married to Mr. Peterson and moved to San Diego.  Now being married for 8 years Mr. Peterson and I have two boys (5 years old and 2 ½ years old). Our son's names are Kasen and Barrett. We also have a blue beta fish named Blueberry. I absolutely love being a mommy! Although being a mom, wife and teacher keep me extremely busy, I love to spend my free time traveling with family, going to the beach, reading, crafting and exercising!



Mrs. Reilly:

Hello, I was born in Riverside and when I was in 5th grade, my family moved to Vista. I went to middle and high school in Vista and have stayed in North County since then. I attended National University where I received my bachelor's degree, teaching credential and then a Master's degree in Education. I truly love working with kids and feel very lucky to have chosen teaching as my career.

Mr. Reilly and I have 2 children. Our son Kellen is 4 years old and our daughter Maryn is 2 years old. They keep us very busy! We also have a cat named Tinkers who enjoys spending her days sleeping on the couch. When I have some quiet time, I like to read, go for walks, do yoga and cook.
